History of the whale that inspired Melville’s Moby-Dick.

  • "Heinz's history of the whale that inspired Melville's
    Moby-Dick is beautifully written, magnificently illustrated
    and agonizing to read...Only the most resolute readers
    will come away unaffected
    Starred Review - Publishers Weekly

  • "This eye catching picture book presents the history of the
    legendary sperm whale behind Herman Melville's classic.
    A tour de force of design, story and illustration. (picture book. 5-10)
    Starred Review - Kirkus Reviews

  • "This intricately designed picture book tells the story of
    the real life whale that inspired Herman Melville's Moby-Dick.
    Heinz's text relies on powerful imagery to convey the strength
    and magnificence of the whale."
