Jumanji

Jumanji

by Peter Lerangis, Chris Van Allsburg, Jordan Horowitz Illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg

Peter and Judy have an adventurous afternoon after finding a game lying under a tree in the park. They get much more than they bargained for when they experience a lion on top of the piano, monkeys in the kitchen, and hot lava in the living room.

Praise for Jumanji
