Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 they'd give Jumanji a try. Little did they know when they unfolded its ordinary-looking 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 ever-shifting 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.

Synopsis:

Left on their own for an afternoon, two bored and restless children find more excitement than they bargained for in a mysterious and mystical jungle adventure board game. Caldecott Medal Book. Full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

A 30th anniversary gift edition to celebrate Jumanji's 1982 Caldecott Award!

Synopsis:

Jumanji, the Caldecott Award-winning jungle adventure book by Chris Van Allsburg, is now available in a handsome book-and-cassette gift package. Sit back and listen as Robin Williams, the star of the major motion picture based on Van Allsburg's book, transports you to the fantasy world of Jumanji. Breathtaking jungle sound effects and an exciting musical score enhance Williams's unique rendering of this fabulous tale.

Synopsis:

A 30th anniversary gift edition to celebrate the magic of Jumanji!

Thirty years ago, Peter and Judy first found the game—Jumanji—with the instructions that once the game is started, it must be finished or it will go on forever—and thirty years ago, with this same wonderment, readers found Jumanji, too.

Since its original publication, Jumanji has been honored with many awards, including the Caldecott Medal, and in 1996, the surreal story was adapted to fit the big screen.

This special anniversary edition of Jumanji contains a CD of the renowned actor Robin Williams reading the timeless tale.

Angel of Starlight, December 8, 2007 (view all comments by Angel of Starlight)
This is a perfect, classic example of a book to which the movie version does absolutely no justice. It is a must-buy for anyone who has small children, as well as daycare centers, school libraries, waiting rooms, and anywhere else in which children might need a good story to read.
