Product description

In this inverse reimagining of Moby Dick, Bathsheba’s whale pod is obsessed with finding a notorious whale killer. Though nobody who’s seen him has lived to tell the tale, rumours of his monstrousness plague the ocean. Rovina Cai's haunting illustrations intensify Ness' lyrical prose and powerful lesson on prejudice and the cycle of violence.

- Recommended by Sinéad Holohan, Dubray Kilkenny

From the multi-award-winning author of A Monster Calls comes a haunting tale of power and obsession that turns the story of Moby Dick upside down.

"Call me Bathsheba." The whales of Bathsheba's pod live for the hunt. Led by the formidable Captain Alexandra, they fight a never-ending war against men. Then the whales attack a man ship, and instead of easy prey they find the trail of a myth, a monster, perhaps the devil himself... With their relentless Captain leading the chase, they embark on the final hunt, one that will forever change the worlds of whales and men.
