Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy

Publisher: Faber Children's Books

Review

The Congo jungle is inhabited by strange creatures: endangered mountain gorillas, okapi, lions, elephants, poachers, pygmy tribes, illegal loggers, rebel soldiers and a mysterious ape-man called Tarzan.

Teenager Robbie Canler has fled a murder in New York to become a logger. His boss’s daughter Jane is his only friend. Mysterious saboteurs keep attacking their camp - their message is clear – leave the jungle alone. But when Jane disappears and the loggers are beaten, then imprisoned by thuggish rebels, it seems that Tarzan is their only hope.

A classic with a 21st century twist, this riveting adventure overflows with suspense, danger, brutality and beauty. An action-packed thriller from the opening line, it leaves the reader wanting more.
