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.

Another Great Tale in the Tarzan Saga
- Marvin Morgan
Fast-paced adventure; narration fair
This is an exciting, fast-paced Tarzan story in which the ape-man must try to rescue Jane and their newborn son from the nefarious scheme of the evil Rokoff. The narrator has a clear, pleasing, expressive, reading voice but, by her several mispronunciations, seems unfamiliar with some common English vocabulary words.
