Wang, Jack & Holman Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, BOARD BOOK, Chronicle Books, 2016. $9.95. Content: G.
This extremely simplified retelling of Moby Dick (12 words) introduces the characters - sailor, the setting - boat, and the plot - mad, and then shows, through felt dolls and scenes, the basic tale of the whale hunt.
This is a great deal of fun. I’m not sure that a board book age child would be interested in the story, but the pictures are great. I can see a teacher using this in an art or a literature class - can you tell the story in 12 words? This is a fine series of simple classic retellings. A great gift.
