Every classic in the series will be condensed to 12 baby-friendly words, and each word will appear alongside a photograph of needle felted objects. Moby Dick is a high seas adventure about one man’s quest to find the whale who took his leg, and one of the world’s most beloved classics. Now this classic can be shared with your youngest children.
Jack and Holman Wang are twin brothers who grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia. They first began writing and illustrating books together in the third grade.
Jack earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in creative writing from the University of Arizona and a Ph.D. in English with an emphasis in creative writing from Florida State University, where his major area was the history of the novel. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Writing at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York, where he specializes in fiction writing.
Holman, an artist and former middle school teacher, holds a bachelor’s degree in education and a master’s degree in architecture history, both from the University of British Columbia.

His work has been featured in newspapers and on TV and radio, including NPR and the CBC.
