CASSETTE ONLY - 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.

      I think this book was great. I loved how it gave so much detail on every animal. I also liked how they went on so many adventures.

        This was a amazing book. When I was reading it, I had to use all of my imagination to imagine the animals running all over the house. In this book, main characters Judy and Peter are expected to keep the house clean when their mother and father leave. Bored, they walk outside and stumble upon a game called Jumanji. Expecting it to be nothing they read the rules. You can guarantee that they got more than they expected. I really liked this book because of how it made the game actually come to life. I do wish they could have wrote a sequel, because that would have made me the happiest kid in the world!
