Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Mr. Van Allsburg's illustrations have a beautiful simplicity of design, balance, texture, and a subtle intelligence beyond the call of illustration." The New York Times
Children's Literature - Deborah Zink and Marilyn Courtot
Thickly shadowed pencil drawings add mystery and intrigue to the tale of two children who enter a jungle adventure board game called Jumanji. "Peter and Judy are part of an exciting tale in which volcanoes, stampeding rhinoceros, monsoons and more come to life." They read in the instructions that "Once a game of Jumanji is started it will not be over until one player reaches the golden city." The children manage to end the game and quickly pack it up and take it out to the park where it is picked up by two brothers. The story is open ended and just begs for a sequel. As one reviewer noted "Energized and perilous, the book is a journey into the remarkable imagination of Van Allsburg" and it won him a Caldecott Medal. This 30th anniversary edition comes with a CD by Robin Williams who was the star of the 1996 movie based on this masterpiece of fantasy. Reviewer: Deborah Zink and Marilyn Courtot
