Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Gray Wolf, bereft of his mate, hunts alone in the snow-bright night, unknowingly infringing on another pack's territory. ``His eyes burn like steady flames. The leader of the pack stares back. Their eyes lock. The moon burns a hole in the night.'' Returning to the ambience of The Owl Who Became the Moon (Children's Forecasts, Dec. 28, 1992), London recreates this single moment--frozen in time, saturated with tension and possibility. And the power of this moment generates a story. Words pour out, as fierce as the arctic cold or as luminous as the yellow moon (a wolf ``floats over the snow . . . flowing like water''), evoking genuine feeling without humanizing animals, and portraying nature without being teacherly. In his full-spread watercolors, Van Zyle--an Iditarod racer who keeps a team of Siberian huskies (close descendants of the wolf)--depicts the arctic night and its wolves with uncommon intimacy and ease. Ages 3-8. (Aug.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Simple poetic text follows the restless Gray Wolf as he wanders through the winter night. Spectacular illustrations present a dramatic look at a beautiful, endangered animal.
Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
The riveting cover portraits on Jonathan London's The Eyes of Gray Wolf guarantee it will be a short-timer-on-the-shelf books. Its equally compelling contents will keep them a long time on the lap. Mr. London's sparely worded tale traces the winter night's progress of a solitary male as it roams the frozen north's forests and ridges in search of food and a mate. Jon Van Zyle so vividly depicts Gray Wolf's habitat and its wildlife, that readers and read-aloud listeners alike will feel like companions in the moonlit pursuits. The author's addenda include a list of organizations to which youngsters can write for information on the preservation and reintroduction of wolves to their native territories.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-In poetic prose as spare as the Northern setting it portrays, a crucial moment in the life of a wolf who has lost his mate to man is described. Gray Wolf hunts on a moonlit winter night until suddenly his senses alert him to the presence of a strange pack. White Wolf steps out, the two animals meet, circling each other, leaving together, and eventually become the leaders of a new pack. The strength of this story is in its art. The moon is a powerful presence, washing over the snow, lighting the wolves' eyes with intensity, highlighting their bristling fur, offering shadows of the pack that never steps into its light. Van Zyle's brushstrokes are rich with texture, drawing readers into the environment and the story. A map showing the animal's past and present ranges, an extensive list of conservation organizations, and an excellent author's note that briefly discusses history, behavior, and endangered status contribute to the authority of the book. Superior art and minimalist text offer a more accessible and gripping glimpse of the wolf than that found in Jim Murphy's The Call of the Wolves (Scholastic, 1989).-Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System
