The game under the tree looked like a hundred others Peters and Judy had at home. But they were bored and restless and, looking for something interesting to do, thought theyd give Jumanji a try. Little did they know when they unfolded its ordinarylooking playing board that they were about to be plunged into the most exciting and bizare adventure of their lives.In his second book for children, Chris Van Allsburg again explores the evershifting line between fantasy and reality with this story about a game that comes startingly to life.His marvelous drawings beautifully convey a mix of the everyday and the extraordinary, as a quiet house is taken over by an exotic jungle.Book Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 4/27/1981Pages: 32Reading Level: Age 5 and Up
