Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs


Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs

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. Tarzan of the Apes , originally written in 1914, tells the story of a baby - orphaned in the African jungle - who was brought up by apes, not knowing his parents were Lord and Lady Greystoke of England.


Good confidence-builders for reluctant readers, this series provides a quick way into a range of classics. The Bookseller Back to School Supplement
