Twenty realistic, ready-to-color scenes, accompanied by an abridged, easy-to-read text, capture all the excitement of the original tale, from Tarzan's adoption by a family of apes to his clashes later in life with such feared jungle predators as Sabor, the lioness, and Kerchak, the dreaded ape king.

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) is the creator of Tarzan, one of the most popular fictional characters of all time, and John Carter, hero of the Barsoom science fiction series. Burroughs was a prolific author, writing almost 70 books before his death in 1950, and was one of the first authors to popularize a character across multiple media, as he did with Tarzan s appearance in comic strips, movies, and merchandise. Residing in Hawaii at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941, Burroughs was drawn into the Second World War and became one of the oldest war correspondents at the time. Edgar Rice Burroughs s popularity continues to be memorialized through the community of Tarzana, California, which is named after the ranch he owned in the area, and through the Burrough crater on Mars, which was named in his honour.
John Green attended a boarding school in Alabama not unlike Alaska's Culver Creek. After graduating from college in 2000, he worked as a chaplain at a children's hospital. His experiences with patients and their families during intense crises solidified his desire to write for teens and inspired him to bring his comic sensibility to a candid novel about the excitement of breaking the rules and the challenge of confronting loss. John now writes for several national magazines, both print and Web-based. He is also a commentator for National Public Radio's afternoon newsmagazine, "All Things Considered," and Chicago's "NPR" affiliate, WBEZ.
Tarzan fans can have their fill of jungle adventures. Weismuller and company get it right, of course. Selecting the best elements in each of the four stories, the adaptation aims for entertainment, romance and adventure--and succeeds. What is Tarzan's jungle without drums and roar of lions and the shrieks of the apes? The sound effects, exaggerated accents, lively pace and multiple voices give variety and drama to the well-known stories. R.F.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
