Staff Pick

Try reading this amazing book out loud and you will fall in love with your own language. The story of Buck the dog, a newcomer to the huskie sled-dog world, puts a better spin on bedtime than any superhero story could. London shows us the wild Alaskan cold, the cruelties endured by many for hundreds of years, and a love that is abiding and true.

Publisher Comments:

Two of Jack London's best-loved masterpieces, in their entirety. Call of the Wild tells a compelling tale of adventure during the Yukon Gold Rush, and fully captures the unquenchable spirit of Buck, a kidnapped dog trying to survive in the harshest of environments. Also set in Alaska, the powerful" White Fang follows the often savage life of the magnificent title character, a mix of wolf and dog.

Synopsis:

The illustrations for this series were created by Scott McKowen, who, with his wife Christina Poddubiuk, operates Punch and Judy Inc., a company specializing in design and illustration for theater and performing arts. Their projects often involve research into the visual aspects of historical settings and characters. Christina is a theater set and costume designer and contributed advice on the period clothing for the illustrations.

Scott created these drawings in scratchboard andshy; an engraving medium which evokes the look of popular art from the period of these stories. Scratchboard is an illustration board with a specifically prepared surface of hard white chalk. A thin layer of black ink is rolled over the surface, and lines are drawn by hand with a sharp knife by scraping through the ink layer to expose the white surface underneath. The finished drawings are then scanned and the color is added digitally.
