The content and manner of writing and illustrations appeal to students (a bit too graphic for younger students).
From a teacher's viewpoint, this book was terribly overpriced.

My 8 year old likes facts and comicbook style illustrations, and whales...so this type of book is just for him.

But beware, this book describes the gruesome voyage of the Essex, which featured cannibalism...a sea captain eating his young cousin. I was nervous that my child, who is the sensitive type, would get nightmares from this book, but somehow the lighthearted illustrations take away some of the sting. In fact, he often pulls out this book to read at bedtime!

Still, be forewarned, these books are not for the squeamish. And I certainly wouldn't read them to the 4-6 set. I'd say the correct age range is something like 8-11.
