Aug 21, 2009 rated it it was ok
Although marketed here as a "Children's" book, this book really is quite violent with various fights, attacks, and killing. I am sure you all know the basics of the story...I don't remember why or when I was introduced to it but I won't bother introducing it to my kids. That said, I won't stop them from reading it either. Children's picture books and cartoons soften this story up nicely.

I think this book is very good. I liked reading the part when Tarzan was grown up and fighting the apes.
