Where Literary Legends Are Born

Happy Book Birthday Might Moby!

Caldecott Medalist Ed Young teamed up with Barbara DaCosta for their second project together–Mighty Moby–which published to great reviews, including two starred reviews!

A Moby Dick-inspired picture book adventure unlike any you’ve ever seen–with a surprise ending–from Caldecott Medal-winning artist Ed Young.

Deep in the dark ocean, Mighty Moby lurks. Up above the ocean waves, a one-legged captain pursues the whale he clashed with long ago.
Mighty Moby and the captain are soon locked in another battle…but things aren’t always what they seem.

Caldecott Medalist Ed Young brings us a dynamically interactive story with a surprise twist that will have you rocking along to the waves of the ocean.
