An imaginative classic and Caldecott Medal winner. Fantasy turns to reality when a game comes to life. The board game that Peter and Judy find under the tree looks like a hundred others that they have at home. But they’re bored and restless, so they decide to give Jumanji a try. Little do they know that when they unfold its ordinary-looking playing board, they’ll be plunged into the most magical and bizarre adventure of their lives. Important: once a game is started, it won’t be over until one player reaches the Golden City…
