Jumanji 30th Anniversary Edition

Jumanji 30th Anniversary Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

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:

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