Monsters! Stomping out of the sea, attacking the city! It's super cool! At least until it actually starts happening in real life, not just in Zoe's favorite movies.
A fun story of how tough it can be to find your true friends, especially if one of them lives under the ocean and is a monster.
I loved Zoe and her passion for robot-building, and the shenanigans of her triplet siblings really made me laugh! A great new graphic novel adventure. — Leah Moore
Ness has flipped a familiar story on it’s head and retold it in a most beautiful way. The fully illustrated book is a delight to behold, but it’s the words themselves that will inspire you and make you view the world around you just a little differently. Just wonderful! — Becky Doherty
“I love Patrick Ness's writing. He generates great tension and his words resound with authority and weight. This story—a Moby Dick tale told from the viewpoint of the whales--follows the apprentice hunter Bathsheba and her pod as they swim down (that's right, down) to the ocean surface to hunt the very men who hunt them. In the process, they find something even more terrible than men. This novel reads like mythology and the theme is a marvelous one, delivered masterfully.”

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Monster Calls comes a lyrical tale, one that asks harrowing questions about power, loyalty, obsession, and the monsters we make of others.
With harpoons strapped to their backs, the proud whales of Bathsheba's pod live for the hunt, fighting in the ongoing war against the world of men. When they attack a ship bobbing on the surface of the Abyss, they expect to find easy prey. Instead, they find the trail of a myth, a monster, perhaps the devil himself...
As their relentless Captain leads the chase, they embark on a final, vengeful hunt, one that will forever change the worlds of both whales and men.
This remarkable work by Patrick Ness turns the familiar tale of Moby Dick upside down and tells a story all its own with epic triumph and devastating fate.
