Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Jack London's story of the dog-wolf hybrid who is raised first as a wolf and later comes to know the world of dogs and humans is a riveting one. Teachers and other readers interested in growth and development will be especially fascinated by London's philosophy as repeatedly portrayed in the book as the "clay" of nature being "molded" by the environment of nurture. In this annotated version of the story, the original text is complete as written. Notes about the physical and social environment of the times during which the story takes place appear in wide margins. While many teachers of history and literature may find these connections helpful in their lesson planning and/or delivery; readers may find them distracting and intrusive. Oftentimes the marginal notes relate directly to events on that page of the text, but more often, they do not. Further, the detached reportorial style of these notes put them in direct conflict with the personal and emotional story that's being told. It's instructive to relate history and literature, but this may not be the best way to accomplish that interdisciplinary goal. 1999 (orig.

    Great for young book lovers!

    This book was bought for my 9 year old son who LOVES to read. He wanted to read the classics just like me, but a lot of the wording was too hard. The classic starts series is perfect for kids who want to get into the classics without all the complicated wording. A great encouragment to keep the reading going! All the basics of the great originals in an easier to read format.

    highly recommended-great for beginner readers to experience with a parent

    This book is easy to read and has lots of action. No matter what reading level your child is, this book is exciting when a child reads it or has it read to them and they understand what is written.

    Ð

    Doveheart sits in the middle of the cavern, her face set in a glare. Water drips slowly from longteeth hanging from the ceiling, falling into pools of murky liquid, which emanate a dim blue glow to contrast the pitch darkness of the tunnels. From the floor jut a few more longteeth, reaching towards the ceiling of the mountain's unnerving maw. <br>
    “What in the name of Starclan are you trying to say?” Doveheart's impatient meow bounces across the unseen cavern walls, directed at an uneven grey boulder in front of her. “Important messenger indeed. All you've said is nonsense. Why am I even down here? Just let me back to my Clan.” <br>
    {She's changed quite a bit,} Stormfire remarks to himself. {Much more irate than ever before - not to mention talking to a boulder.} <br>
    A whisper grates through the cavern, like the sound of trees creaking in slight winds. “Fire... ice... blood... fall...” <br>
    Doveheart's fur stands on end for a moment, as does Stormfire's, as a breeze sweeps through - slighter than a cat's breath, but colder than the most biting winds of winter. The blue glimmer shudders and dims. The mountain shakes... and then all returns to normal... <br>
    (Whoa! Best writing of mine in quite a while.)

    Darkfang

    The Master of Darkness padded through the forest. Darkfang sat down, and practiced using tangible darkness. Her eyes turned red, as they usually do when she conjures darkness. A tendril of tangible darkness curled around a tree branch, and broke it off. She turned off her power. "I didn't expect you to be able to use your powers." Said a voice behind. Darkfang turned around to find the same group of rouges that ki<_>lled her mentor. "You..." she began, darkness starting to form around her as her gray eyes turned red again. A black tom with green eyes, apparently the leader, walked up to Darkfang. "Your mother and her kits were Dark Masters, as well as you and your mentor, I cannot leave any weak Dark Masters alive." "How did you know about me, my mother, my siblings, and my mentor being Masters of Darkness?" Darkfang asked. The tom said "I am Shadowblood, your father."<p>"You are no father of mine! You are cruel and heartless!" Darkfang hissed. "All Dark Masters are destined to rule the clans." Shadowblood said. Soon, his eyes turned red and he was surrounded in darkness, too. Then he turned into a winged wolf, the rarest form a Dark Master can turn into. Shadowblood lashed out a dark tendril at Darkfang, wrapping her in it. It disabled all her powers, so she can't counterattack nor turn into a bat. Then Shadowblood attacked her brutally. Eventually, he stopped attacking Darkfang. "That ought to finish her off. C'mon, let's find a Clan to terrorize." Shadowblood said, turning back into a wolf. The rouge group walked off. Darkfang shakily stood up and limped to camp.

    My son got this as a gift and loved it. I never read White Fang

    My son got this as a gift and loved it. I never read White Fang and did a quick read of a few chapters of the original that found for free online; then read this one through. This is a good book and I'm tempted to check out the original now. Only reason not 5 stars is that, in the original chapters I've read online and some google searches (nothing too deep), it appears that one character in the first chapter DIES (it strongly suggests that he dies anyway and since it is not graphically detailed not sure why it was not included here). I'm not sure what else could have been changed as I've never read anything but a few bits of the original so only 4 stars.
