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.
When Judy and Peter find a board game in the park, they take it home, hoping to alleviate their boredom. One live lion, an erupting volcano, and a dozen destructive monkeys later, the children are no longer bored. Their jungle adventure game has come to life! Chris Van Allsburg is a master at walking the line between fantasy and reality. His unusually sculptured drawings (familiar to the many devoted fans of the Caldecott-winning The Polar Express and The Garden of Abdul Gasazi) convey the magical transition of a normal house to an exotic jungle. Readers will tremble along with Judy and Peter, urging them to roll the dice that will plunge them from one perilous predicament into another. Jumanji, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book and winner of the 1982 Caldecott Medal, is sure to amaze and thrill even the most jaded young reader. (Ages 9 to 12)
