    Tom Ratliff

    Paperback (Book House, Feb. 1, 2011)
    Jack London's classic novel White Fang is here faithfully adapted to the graphic novel format. White Fang, a wolf-dog, must fight to survive, and humans are not always his friends, but in this touching story of bravery and animal instinct, he overcomes his brutal nature to settle, domesticated, in a comfortable home. Ideal as visual introductions to classic texts, Graffex titles are fast-moving, cinematic retellings of wellknown stories. Equally rewarding as comics, graphic novels or learning resources, the series uses specially commissioned full-colour artwork to retell some of the most incredible, influential and memorable tales in the canon of English literature. Speech bubbles feature direct quotes from the original text, running captions describe events in a clear manner and detailed footnotes translate challenging vocabulary and provide interesting background information. It's a wealth of key information that, critically, doesn't overwhelm or distract from the original story. Featuring photographs, paintings and maps, Graffex endmatters tell the story of each book in its wider geographical context. Text details the life of the author, the socio-political events which influenced the book and the impact the book had on the society of the time. Each title also features a double-page opening illustration and a full index.
