Written in the early 1900s, these classic jungle stories prove that they can still entertain young readers. Shelly Frasier speaks with sharp consonants and a pleasant maternal tone as she narrates this episode from the famous Tarzan series. This story picks up in the middle of Tarzan's life. Old foe Nicholas Rockov forces him to leave his comfortable life as Lord Graystoke and return to the jungle. Children will adore Frasier's ability to mesmerize them with the adventures of the venerable hero they have loved for generations. Unfortunately, the audiobook contains extraneous sounds and editing problems, which could disturb the concentration of adult listeners.

As THE BEASTS OF TARZAN begins, Tarzan -- as Lord Greystoke -- is settled in civilized London. But two of his enemies, Nikolas Rokoff and henchman Alexis Paulvitch, are on his trail. The pair abducts Jane -- and Tarzan's son, Jack. Tarzan himself is stranded on a desert island, but with the help of Sheeta the panther and Akut the great ape he makes it back to the mainland. There he meets Mugambi, the giant chief of the Wagambi tribe, who becomes Tarzan's lifelong friend and ally. The group heads into the deep jungle after the kidnappers -- and when Tarzan finds them he lets the beast inside him wreck his vengeance. There's a beautiful irony, here -- Tarzan has come from the jungle into civilization, and his son must go from civilization to the jungle. Where Tarzan grew up without human guidance or moral direction, he has become an honorable man -- chivalrous, almost noble; a genuinely good man. And now his son, raised in civilization, must now walk a similar path. . . .
