Haunted by prophesies of his own death, Captain Ahab hunts the vast waters of the Pacific in search of the great white whale that has become his obsession. This towering novel has been sympathetically edited to a tenth of its original length, focusing on the exciting chase at the core of the book as all but one of the Pequod's loyal crew are sacrificed to Ahab's great obsession.

About the Author:

Herman Melville was an American novelist, essayist, and poet, best known for his masterpiece Moby- Dick. Jan Needle is a writer of children's books, plays, criticism, cartoons, TV programmes and a wide range of fiction for adults. He divides his time between Oldham and Manchester.

Patrick Benson was born in 1956 and educated at Eton; in Florence, where he studied classical drawing; and at Chelsea Art School. He worked in the fashion business before a chance meeting with the sister of Sebastian Walker (founder of Walker Books) introduced him to the company. Patrick has illustrated for a wide range of authors including Martin Waddell and Roald Dahl, and he also illustrated Fly Fishing by J. R. Hartley, from the well-known television commercial.
