Ferdinand The Fisherman
A New Tale of Moby Dick
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.
