A 30th anniversary gift edition to celebrate the magic of Jumanji!

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 thirty years ago, 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 anniversary edition of Jumanji contains a CD of the renowned actor Robin Williams reading the timeless tale.

About the Book

" " The 30th anniversary edition of"Jumanji "celebrates this timeless tale as a New York Times Best Illustrated Book and winner of the 1982 Caldecott Medal by the prolific Chris Van Allsburg.
" Jumanji" has amazed and thrilled even the most jaded young reader.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.
The 30th anniversary edition will include enriched material--a code to download a Jumanji app, a CD, and a new jacket.
