Book Review: Tarzan The Centennial Celebration by Scott Tracy Griffin

My rating for Tarzan The Centennial Celebration – 5

Buy this book from*

Tarzan The Centennial Celebrationcompiled by Scott Tracy Griffin (website) is, in one word, amazing. The book is a feast to the eyes, I spent hours sitting down looking at it explain to my son (5) whose who and looking at the great visuals and animals (he just did the letter “E” in kindergarten so we were looking for elephants).

The book is full of great art, pictures, illustrations and even sketches by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The text associated with the pictures is very interesting and enlightening about every subject Tarzan fans would like to delve into, from his animals to synopsis of each of the stories by Burroughs and others.

A fascinating introduction by actor Ron Ely starts the journey into Tarzan and other writings by Burroughs. Followed by a short biography of Burroughs and a short synopsis of every Tarzan book he published with high quality images of gorgeous covers. A short chapter about Tarzan for children, followed by a “How to Speak Ape” section and maps of Africa drawn by Mr. Burroughs himself.

A fantastic section about the comics followed by those who played Tarzan on radio, stage, the silver screen and television – even Disney’s Tarzan gets a mention. The book closes out telling the fans about Tarzana, Ca, collectibles, authorized sequels, foreign editions, the web and more.

This is a wonderful book with a “WOW’ factor for the inner geek in all of us. The book will grace the coffee table in our house and is a great present for the geek who has everything.
