Edgar Rice Burroughs's story of the boy raised by apes now comes to life for a new generation of young readers in this exciting picture book. Tarzan, whose name means "whiteskin", is adopted by a tribe of apes, but as he grows older, he begins to realize that he is not like the others. When he explores the abandoned cabin of his dead parents, he discovers that he is something called "human", a species that uses reason and intelligence. These special human qualities give him the power he needs to become ruler of the apes. But at the same time, he knows that he cannot always be among them; he must leave to follow his destiny as a man.
