Today, myself and my 8 year old daughter, Elizabeth, embarked upon a marathon 50 page march to the end of Moby Dick, so desperate was she to watch the film starring Patrick Stewart (yes I am aware the Gregory Peck one is superior but I cannot watch it since we found out real whales were hunted for the footage). A notoriously fickle reader of fiction but devourer of non fiction we thought this would tick all her boxes and get her reading outside her comfort zone.

This is a good book to read to get an idea of what Moby Dick is really about. I read this before I started reading the original. Very good book! I would recommend this to a lot of people.

It's slightly too advanced for my just turned 6 year old son, plus we took long breaks between chapters, making continuity difficult. Will re-shelve this classic and try again in a year or two.
