    My youngest loved wolves, so I got him this for a birthday present. We read it together, with his big brother, before bed. At first, the harsh reality of life in the wild caused a little heartache, but it was also fascinating to see life from White Fang's perspective. Once White Fang is adopted by Wheedon Scott, the book took a much happier turn. We absolutely loved the ending. My youngest loved wolves, so I got him this for a birthday present.

    Personal Response: I think this book was very interesting. The book had lots of plot twist. The dog narrates the book with its thoughts.

Plot Summary: White Fang was a pup of a dog and wolf. White Fang and his mother lived in the wild. They were split up by an Indian tribe and never saw each other again. White Fang was sold to a mean man. The wolf was abused, and he was forced to dog fight. He was sold again to another man. He was nice to White Fang. Recommendation: I would recommend this book to all age groups. People who have a strong interest in dogs would like this book. This book has a lot of plot twist, so I would recommend it to people who like change. Characterization: White Fang started out as a pup. He was taught how to hunt and catch his own food. White Fang learned how to defend himself against predators. White Fang became a mean dog after all the fighting. He soon became loving again to his owner.

As White Fang being the main character, he was an orphan cub who gets sold to one person to the other until he finds a person who will love him and becomes a very crucial character to White Fang. This book is very interesting because of the story line and because of all the hardships White Fang has to go through until reaching his goal of finding a true friend who will love him. In this book not only does the author use really great adjectives ,but it also paints a picture in your mind. Whether being depressing or humorous this book really explores the tragedies of White Fang which always grabs my attention and makes it feel like your living in the book. Some of my favorite points in the book is how well White Fang adapts to his changes by adapting negatively or positively. One of the most major themes is when a person named Weedon Scott appears. Then and only then can White Fang experience what true happiness, compassion, love, and loyalty feels like. This book appeared to be very emotional to me when White Fang was abandoned or beaten. There's no way you can read this book and not shed some tears on the pages. Although this book can be a tear dripper, it has some really amazing points and I assure you that if the book starts to get a little boring it'll pick back up. I would definitely recommend this book. :D

    I'm not sure how to rate this book so I'm not going to. My seven year old would give it 5 stars though. She devoured this book! And that's saying something because I've had a hard time finding books that interest her and that she will sit and read on her own. She loves wolves and dogs though, so when my husband pulled out his old set of illustrated classics from his childhood, she picked this one and she was hooked from page one.

I have never read the actual book by Jack London, and after reading this, I'm not sure I want to. Even for a children's book, this was quite violent. It is the story of a 3/4 wolf, 1/4 dog and the extremely harsh treatment he receives, both from other animals in the wild as well as humans when he finds the human world. It really was a pretty depressing book, but ends well. I'm just glad my seven year old found a book to love.

    This book is one of the better reasons I have for why I talk to my pets. Jack London is certainly opinionated when it comes to society, but I have to admit that he does bring up some excellent points... albeit unpleasant at times.

    This is one of Jack London's most painful stories to me and no it isn't just since of the amount of bad publicity first of all put onto wolves but also the fact that it captures mankind at their worst. The original book is violent, bloody and cruel while it is no surprise how White Fang turned out before meeting his love-master. Malvina Vogel did an okay job on adapting this particular version but to me it felt quite diminished. for it was really sanitized. It takes out the whole beginning part This is one of Jack London's most painful stories to me and no it isn't just since of the amount of bad publicity first of all put onto wolves but also the fact that it captures mankind at their worst. The original book is violent, bloody and cruel while it is no surprise how White Fang turned out before meeting his love-master. Malvina Vogel did an okay job on adapting this particular version but to me it felt quite diminished. for it was really sanitized. It takes out the whole beginning part where the pack are hunting the two men for days and the reason they are out there in the first place has also been removed although if you look at one of the illustrations there is a suggestion of that dead body on the sled. Due to they removed the whole tracking and conversation between the first two men, Kiche has been provided with her civilized name the whole time instead of the She-Wolf moniker that she is first known as. This is quite disappointing to me since she isn't even living as Kiche in the first part. And at the same time the book is really trimmed as well in other details such as the younger male wolf who challenged One Eye and the ensuing fight between the two to win She-Wolf as a mate. Otherwise the essence of the story is kept for the reader who has never read White Fang. As a result the reader still gets to see what White Fang had to deal with as a pup growing up in the wilderness, his introduction to the man-animals, his introduction to the need of surviving from other dogs who bully him and also his slow change of owners. It is the latter portion of the book that is the most important to the reader for it makes this book quite resemble Black Beauty as Beauty compared the different types of horse masters that are out there in the world. The reason why I gave this book such a lower star rating than I did the original is given to the illustrations themselves. The illustrations resemble all the illustrations for this collection of Classics, which are the most simplistic black-and-white type with no color. Unfortunately it is the details that threw me off. The gray White Fang is shown as black when compared to his siblings to differentiate the wolfish pup from his more dog-like siblings. And at the same time once he gets older he is drawn to resemble more like a husky dog instead of the wolf that he is said to be. Other illustration discrepancies are the portrayal of the lynx as she isn't lynx-like while missing the distinctive face ruff and her tail is too long. At the same time the young wolves are shown as adult size as they are in their den although they weren't old enough to leave the confines thus would have been much smaller and the Indian dogs were more shown as short haired hounds instead of native canines. Although I appreciate the idea behind Great Illustrated Classics I have to say that this is one of the ones I have read that was more of a disappointment than otherwise. If you are into adventurous stories and facing the survival of the wild I would most definitely recommend to read the whole original version instead of this trimmed version as it has way more to offer.

    This is a truly spectacular book. The idea in general is genius buy having the story be told though the eyes of a dog this i believe spawned the whole genre of books told though the perspective of an animal. My favorite characters is white fang. The reason this is because when you see it though his eyes and the way he thinks it makes me feel connected to him and like im living the story. Even though he had a tough life i was really glad he ended up with a happy ending. My least favorite characte This is a truly spectacular book.

My least favorite characters is beauty smith because of how good the wrote his character. when jack london wrote his character he really made me hate him as a good villain should make you feel and one moment in the story during beauty smith ownership of white fang almost had me in tears. Another thing that i really enjoyed about this book is the fact none of the owners were similar to the other and it caused white fang as a characters to learn and adapt to the different type of people he was around and when with each different owner and to get rid of old truth he new about the gods ( which is what he calls them) . Finally one connections that i made was the way jack london wrote it in comparison to his other book call of the wild. In call of the it goes from domestic to wild and in white fang its the other way around. Overall i would recommend this to pretty much anybody and i believe every body should get a chance to read this book.

    I loved these Great Illustrated Classics when I was a kid! Honestly, I think between these and Wishbone, it's no surprise that I grew up to be a fan of classic literature. This book was actually my husband's from childhood, but it's one that I hadn't read. And I'll be honest--as an adult, this isn't the most riveting writing.

That's why I think these stories are so important. On one hand, they expose readers to these classic stories and on the other hand, they can spark an interest in classic literature by presenting worthwhile stories in a format that is less daunting. Now I'm rambling. White Fang is a great story--both the original and this adaptation. I wouldn't call this a must-read for adults, but this would be a good read for children. Hey, it would be a good contender for some parent-child reading, too--whether reading aloud or reading in tandem with the original. Just a thought!

    I think the book is fantastic for kids. There are a couple unpleasant images, however, that is life, messy. Not everything in life is going to be easy and beautiful. A lesson well taught in this book. My 8 year old son and I read this as his reading assignment during the Covid-19 quarantine. He quite enjoyed it and was able to comprehend the text well.

    I am a 12 year old home schooler. All of the pictures in great illustrated classics help me understand the story. I've read Call of the Wild and White Fang. I like them both but White Fang has a little bit of a happier ending. I am a 12 year old home schooler. All of the pictures in great illustrated classics help me understand the story.

    This was a great read aloud for my 6, 5, and 3 year old. They liked this version better than the illustrated classic version from Barnes and Noble. My 6 year old said this book gave much more detail. Had just enough pictures to keep my 5 and 3 y/os engaged

    Have you ever wondered what makes dogs and wolves so similar but different? This book is very good at showing the grueling and harsh perspective of an Alaskan wolf. The main characters are White Fang a ferociously strong wolf, Kiche a she-wolf and mother of White Fang, Gray Beaver White Fangs first master, Beauty smith his second master, and Weedon Scott his third master. Throughout the story, White Fang meets several humans which he refers to as gods.

The main characters are White Fang a ferociously strong wolf, Kiche a she-wolf and mother of White Fang, Gray Beaver White Fangs first master, Beauty smith his second master, and Weedon Scott his third master. Throughout the story, White Fang meets several humans which he refers to as gods. White Fang is treated badly and at times is severely almost abused to death. Since he is a wild wolf, he is more elusive than many dogs he is forced to fight with and is a lot tougher, which gives him the will to carry on without dying. This was an amazing and emotional story to read. I think the author’s message was to not judge others by assumptions. I think another theme is to never give up on yourself, because throughout the book White Fang stayed strong and loyal to each of his masters. I think that this book was a cool one if u like dogs. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a leak an wilderness and animals.

    "White Fang" by Jack London. White Fang is half dog and half wolf. Growing up in the Yukon territory of Canada during the Klondike Gold Rush, he learned the law of the Wild at an early age: kill, or be killed, eat, or be eaten. Separated from his mother and traded from master to master, White Fang never grasped the concept of love, and violence was all that he knew. Having no teacher, he learned the rules of survival by experience. Then, a cruel man called Beauty Smith buys White Fang and turns "White Fang" by Jack London. White Fang is half dog and half wolf.

Having no teacher, he learned the rules of survival by experience. Then, a cruel man called Beauty Smith buys White Fang and turns him into a pit dog forced to fight for money. But after a while White Fangs gets saved by two men. One problem is that most of white fangs family died when he was young the solution is that he learned the law of the wild to hunt, or be hunted, to eat, or be eaten. The second problem is that White fang was used as a fighting dog the solution is that he got saved by to guys. Another problem is that White fang kept getting trade by all different kinds of people the solution is he gets saved by two men. I loved this book because it was exciting and your never knew what was going to happen next. My favorite part of the book is when White fang is about to die and 2 men rescue him and keep him as there own and never trades him for anything. It was an awesome book and I would recommend it to everyone. The theme of this story is that you never know whats going to happen in life so you need to know how to survive by yourself.

While scavenging for food they are taken in by a tribe of Native Americans that Kiche’s mother belonged to. White fang is traded by the tribe to a guy named Beauty Smith who runs a dog fighting ring. I feel like everyone should read this book. I think this book is valuable because it teaches how you should treat an animal and how you shouldn’t treat an animal. It also shows how poor treatment can drastically change an animal. I love this author's third person perspective because you hear the perspective of White Fang and his owners. I feel the part when White Fang is waiting outside of the saloon where Gray Beaver is trading things for whiskey is very slow. I feel a connection to this book because I know how bad animal cruelty can affect an animal, and treating animals nicely can make a mean animal usually nicer. The voice of the author emphasizes his point that you should be nice to animals. This book is a great fast read if you want a meaningful book. I would suggest this book to anyone that can handle some animal cruelty in books. I would agree with this book being a classic because it teaches a very valuable lesson that you should treat animals with respect like how you would like to be treated.
