Over thirty years ago, Peter and Judy first found the game--Jumanji--with the instructions that once the game is started, it must be finished or it will go on forever--and it was then, with this same wonderment, readers found Jumanji, too.
Since its original publication, Jumanji has been honored with many awards, including the Caldecott Medal, and in 1996, the surreal story was adapted to fit the big screen.
This special edition of Jumanji contains a downloadable audiobook of the renowned actor Robin Williams reading the timeless tale.

My kids absolutely loved this book! It was a total edge of the bed experience with both sets of eyes locked on every page. Unfortunately, the movie will have to wait - they were both too scared.

First, I would not classify this as a picture book, but rather a very short chapter book with pictures. The story is written for a school age audience rather than younger children. The illustrations are pencil drawings. The are beautiful and rich. The reason I would not recommend this book for little children is because as the characters play the game, Jumani, many disastrous and scary things happen such as a lion chasing them.
The movie adaption of this book is quite different although it keeps the basic concept of playing the Jumanji game. I love the movie and would recommend this book based mostly on the amazing illustrations.
Would I recommend this book? YES for ages 8 and up.
