Longlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2020

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Ness's imagination is often awe-inspiring; he goes to places no whale has gone before and is never short of a deep thought. This is not just a story about hunting whales, it's a comment on the futility of war, and the myths that we create and use as excuses for our actions.' - The Times

'Mind-bendingly brilliant and fearlessly strange!' - Frances Hardinge, author of The Lie Tree

“Haunting!”

I found it quite difficult to write a review for this book. Patrick Ness is a great writer so was inspired to try something different. I started off unsure because I was not familiar with this classic. It was a dark... More

“Fantastic”

Such a fantastic book! I couldn't put it down once i'd started, the artwork is simplistic but has huge impact on the story. It's so nice to find a book that explores humanity and morality in the eyes of... More
