This wonderful series is a quick way into a range of exciting stories, from the chilling tale of Frankenstein, to the gripping adventure of Treasure Island and the powerful animal story of Call of the Wild. Fast-moving and accessible, each story is a shortened, dramatically illustrated version of the classic novel, which loses none of the strength and flavour of the original. "Call of the Wild", by Jack London, became a huge bestseller when it was first published in 1903. It tells the story of Buck, a much-loved dog who is kidnapped and transported to the snowy wastes of northwest Canada to work for gold hunters. As the story unfolds, Buck becomes more and more a dog of the wild, until at the end he faces pack of wolves.
