Reviews

Strasser's pacing is flawless, and his characters well drawn. While Ishmael's true past is unveiled slowly, readers will find themselves drawn to his obvious bravery and loyalty from the very first page...A must-read maritime adventure story for a new generation.
--School Library Journal

Equal parts Moby-Dick retelling, environmental cautionary tale, and coming-of-age story, Strasser's fantastical SF epic blends disparate pieces into a harmonious whole...Strasser weaves an engrossing tapestry that evokes a sense of wonder and calls to the imagination.
--Publishers Weekly You don't need to have read Moby-Dick to enjoy Strasser's science-fiction retelling...Recommend to readers of pure adventure (with no romance!) on the high seas.
--Booklist With The Beast of Cretacea, Todd Strasser (The Wave; Give a Boy a Gun; Fallout) crafts a thrilling interplanetary adventure based on Herman Melville's classic story of revenge and madness, Moby Dick...High-tech gadgets, from drones to virtual reality goggles, add a modern twist to this apocalyptic adaptation, part political satire, part environmental cautionary tale.
--Shelf Awareness ...a pure adventure core...
--Kirkus Reviews There's a whole lot of book here: gripping descrip- tions of an Earth polluted beyond belief, time travel, long passages featuring gory sea battles, mystical island folk, and, of course, the overlaps with a very famous book...
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Those who enjoyed Rives' Across the Universe trilogy (Razorbill) will enjoy this new spin on saving planet Earth.
--School Library Connection
