Jumanji

By Chris Van Allsburg

Special edition released to celebrate its 35th year of publication, and to coincide with the new Jumanji movie, starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Jack Black.

The game under the tree looked like a hundred others Peter 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 bizzare adventure of their lives. Bestselling Polar Express creator and Caldecott Medal winning Chris Van Allsburg explores the ever-shifting line between fantasy and reality with this story about a game that comes startlingly to life.
