Orphaned as an infant when his mother and father die in the African jungle, young Lord Greystoke (later known as Tarzan) begins a remarkable life journey. Adopted and raised by Kala, a female ape, he grows up to be strong and clever, learning to communicate with his primate family as well as with other animals of the wild. This imaginative and exciting tale of the 'King of the Apes' has long been a favorite adventure novel. Set in large, easy-to-read type, this specially abridged edition, strikingly illustrated by John Green, will introduce today's young readers to one of the most memorable characters in early 20th century fiction.
