Tarzan Young Adult Novels Coming to US

More jungle book news. As some of you might remember author Andy Briggs was authorized by Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc to write a new series of young adult novels featuring new versions of Tarzan and Jane Porter. The first one, Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy, was published I believe in late 2010-early 2011 and Briggs followed up with a sequel, Tarzan: The Jungle Warrior. Both books however have not been released in the US, but Briggs himself has confirmed on his web site that publisher Open Road has acquired the rights to both and will be releasing them on October 16. You can read his post and the reason why the books have taken so long to come to America here http://www.andybriggs.co.uk/Home/Entries/2012/7/13_TARZAN_HITS_AMERICA!.html. Also the British site The Guardian has an excerpt from the second book online for your reading enjoyment at http://www.guardian.co.uk/childrens-books-site/interactive/2012/jul/12/new-adventures-tarzan-andy-briggs?
