"The land was enormous, white with snow, and silent. Into the still, lifeless silence broke the sounds and movements of life - of dogs breathing, and men calling to the dogs..." White Fang is one of these dogs and the greatest fighter of them all. "Penguin Readers" is a series of simplified novels, film novelizations and original titles that introduce students at all levels to the pleasures of reading in English. Originally designed for teaching English as a foreign language, the series' combination of high interest level and low reading age makes it suitable for both English-speaking teenagers with limited reading skills and students of English as a second language. Many titles in the series also provide access to the pre-20th century literature strands of the National Curriculum English Orders. "Penguin Readers" are graded at seven levels of difficulty, from "Easystarts" with a 200-word vocabulary, to Level 6 (Advanced) with a 3000-word vocabulary. In addition, titles fall into one of three sub-categories: "Contemporary", "Classics" or "Originals". At the end of each book there is a section of enjoyable exercises focusing on vocabulary building, comprehension, discussion and writing. Some titles in the series are available with an accompanying audio cassette, or in a book and cassette pack. Additionally, selected titles have free accompanying "Penguin Readers Factsheets" which provide stimulating exercise material for students, as well as suggestions for teachers on how to exploit the Readers in class.
The book White Fang by Jack London was bought for my grandson who likes the way London writes. I also purchased one for myself so when we discuss the book I can speak with him from a standpoint of having also read the book.
I enjoyed the book as much as he did. It is a shame London's life was cut short I think there would have been many more stories to enjoy had he lived.
