Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—Jack London's classic tale detailing the life of a wolf-dog is modified for young readers in this book/CD package. The adaptation provides a very lean version of the original—plots points are described very economically and with simple words, and most of the grisly details are trimmed away. London's mastery of writing about life in the wild isn't evident in such a pared-down version and it lacks the spirit of the original. The narration is stilted, adding to the tales feeling of lifelessness. Take a pass on this one.—Amy Holland, Irondequoit Public Library, Evans Branch, Rochester, NY
