About the Author:

Herman Melville (1819-1891) worked as a bank clerk, farmhand, and teacher before going to sea, starting as a cabin boy and ultimately joining the U.S. Navy. He is best known for Moby-Dick, one of the greatest works of American literature.

Patrick Benson has illustrated dozens of children's books, including OWL BABIES by Martin Waddell, SQUEAK'S GOOD IDEA by Max Eilenberg, THE SEA-THING CHILD by Russell Hoban, and THE MINPINS by Roald Dahl. The recipient of a Mother Goose Award in 1984, Patrick Benson lives in Hawick, England.
