The Young Man and the Sea.

Grade 5-8₆Ernest Hemingway, the author of The Old Man and the Sea, once remarked that American literature began with Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Rodman Philbrick repays the compliment with a nod to Hemingway in The Young Man and the Sea(Blue Sky, 2004) set in coastal Maine. Trying to overcome the sadness of his mother's death and his father's melancholy and inattention, Philbrick's protagonist, Skiff Beaman, sets out to sea in a small wooden boat to catch a giant fish with a harpoon made by his Dad, hoping to earn enough money to repair the family boat. Landing a giant tuna in open water, Skiff, like Hemingway's Old Man, fights the forces of nature and finds the strength to catch the record-breaking fish. Expertly narrated by actor Kirby Heyborne, this is a compelling coming-of-age tale of adversity, heartache, and triumph. Filled with suspense and pathos, middle school students may be inspired to read Hemingway's classic as well.--Larry Cooperman, Jacksonville Public Library, FL Copyright ♭ Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
