good book, good graphics, enjoyed it a lot. I read this book for the Fall semester for educ 318. (Sherry)

The Call of the Wild adapted by Seymour Reit; includes some difficult vocabulary, but the pictures will help clarify meaning for students who struggle with reading. Also includes at bottom of page 7 “Note to Readers: There’s no excuse for being cruel to an animal. Animals, just like people, learn best when trained gently, firmly and respectfully.” This note is added to page 7 because the first animal trainer in Alaska used very cruel techniques to break Buck.

The above three graphic novels come from the same book. A note on the verso page states: “These stories reflect many of the values, opinions, and standards of language that existed during the times in which the works were written. Much of the language is also a reflection of the personalities and lifestyles of the stories’ narrators and characters. Readers today may strongly disagree, for example, with the ways in which members of various groups, such as women or ethnic minorities, are described or portrayed. In compiling these works, however, we felt that it was important to capture as much of the original flavor and character of the original stories as we could and to use art that also captures the spirit of the lives and times of the stories and characters. Rather than delete or alter language that is intrinsically important to literature, we hope that these stories will give parents, educators, and young readers a chance to think and talk about the many ways in which people lead their lives, view the world, and express their feelings about what they have lived through.” ( )
