Product description...

Ferdinand the Fisherman is Moby Dick’s Story rewritten for the 21st Century

Moby Dick, the most famous of all whales in literature was an angry, feared creature, relentlessly hunted by Captain Ahab. But in this story, Moby dick is “A gentle creature, friend of man, but shy of those who live on land.” Both Moby Dick and Ferdinand each suffer tragedies, Moby Dick at the hand of Cap’n Ahab, and Ferdinand to a violent storm that took his boat and left him to drown. But both emerge victorious in the most wonderful way. This is an excellent story for young readers, to introduce them to the art of storytelling through poetry.

Author Information...

D.H. FaulknerAs a Technical writer and industrial instructor, I always turned to poetry as an escape from the dry, mundane world of technical jargon that consumed my working life. I am from New England near the ocean, and my working career afforded me the chance to travel a great deal, always writing letters to my children in rhyme, and other pieces of a romantic nature or cynical observations on current events. But Ferdinand was a story born out of a profound respect for the people of Hawaii and their reverence for the world around them. Thus I consider this to be my best work, and have finally decided to share it. Ferdinand the Fisherman is truly a whale story for the 21st century, when these magnificent creatures are finally appreciated for what and who they are.
