5.0 out of 5 stars Different kind of kid's book. 14 May 2002
By Mark Savary - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is one of those children's picture books that doesn't quite fit a given, standardized genre. In many ways, it bucks the trends, refuses to be pigeonholed, and is a departure from the norm.
While "The Eyes of Grey Wolf" is indeed supposed to be a children's book, it defies description and genre in such unique ways as to make it fit for any age group. Best of all, the story is guaranteed to stay with you, despite taking up only thirty pages.
Written in a short, to-the-point, and almost poetic prose style that conjures up Native American folk tales, the book is equal parts kids book and adult literature. And the paintings? Absolutely glorious in their realistic depiction of Gray Wolf's adventure on a snowy, moonlit night. The effect of combining both the stylized writing and luminous art is an almost magical tale that could have come from Native legends.
Included at the end is a page or two with factual information on wolves, and contact information for some wolf conservation groups. Overall, an excellent book for any youngster's report on wolves, endangered species, or the environment.
The book is relatively short, but do not let that dissuade you from purchasing it. Once you've read it, you'll be glad to have "The Eyes of Grey Wolf" in your collection.
To author London and illustrator Van Zyle, I say thank you for putting this project together.

4.0 out of 5 stars London's story is entrancing 21 July 2000
By G. Sherman H. Morrison - Published on Amazon.com
By looking into Grey Wolf's entrancing yellow eyes, we are able to grasp the radiance and spirit of these magnificent animals. Grey Wolf has lost his mate to a steel trap that man had set in the forest. We hear his howling, his "untamed music." It echoes from the mountains. Through illustrations of moonlit valleys hugged by the still night air, we become part of Gray Wolf's quest. He finds a pack in night's stillness and his eyes dance with the eyes of the pack leader. A white wolf separates herself from the pack and she and Gray Wolf circle each other. "Even the trees seem to hold their breath." Then the wolves trot off across the snow and soon curl up together to wait for spring. They will make a new pack of their own. The poetic prose written for a lower elementary audience and magnificent drawings vividly depict the great beauty of the wolf. At the end of the book, the author lists many preservation groups and shows a map of the wolf's range in North America in the 1700's versus its range today. This book is a wonderful starting point to educate children about the wolf's endangered status in the lower 48 states (except Minnesota where they are threatened). There are many wolf recovery programs in the United States including the Wolf Reintroduction Program at Yellowstone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Educating Young Readers on the Plight of the North American Wolf 5 July 2013
By serenitysue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The wolves were almost hunted into extinction in 48 states of the United States. Simply told, we learn about a wolf who has lost his mate to trap hunting and his search for another. A great way to present the much-debated plight of wolves who are today caught in steel traps and left to die. Conservation resources to learn more are presented at the end of the book.

Simple read for younger elementary school students with amazing illustrations.
5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time favorites 30 Aug 2012
By Kris Irvin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have loved wolves since I was 6 years old. Of course, when I was a kid, there was very little out there on wolves. I got this book from a book fair when I was 12 and my copy is well, well loved.

The story is a little wordy for very young children. My 4 year old son won't sit through each page because it's really quite long. I would recommend it for ages 5 and up.

The real treasure in this book is the illustrations/artwork. Each page is so beautifully crafted and amazingly detailed, down to each hair on Gray Wolf's coat and the expression in the pack's eyes. Some pages are just breathtaking.

I now have two copies of this book - my original version complete with 12 year old notes and tracing marks, and a brand new copy for my son to discover and love when he's a little bit older. For younger children who are interested in wolves, I would recommend "Walk with a Wolf" by Janni Howker.
