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.

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.

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.

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.

This was a gift for my special little friend who is finally realizing her reading potential after finally having a teacher who understands her form of dyslexia and was able to "break through to her" thought and visual process and help her to make sense of the words and their order. Kudos to special teachers who take the time to really understand their students!!

Everyone needs to read this at least once in their life time. MANY that I know have read White Fang numerous times. From a young person, teenager to 80 years old. All ages love this book .Very good reading .Well written, I enjoy it more every time I get to read it. Makes a good gift for all readers of any age. Good book discussion for all reading groups... I think that Jack London is one of my all time favorite writers. I enjoy all his works. Need more of his older books republished.
