This version of Jumanji is a Caldecott winner. With pencil drawings and shading, the light angles are very realistic. A boy and his sister find a game in the park and take it home to play it only to find that they are trapped in the game and must complete it to get out of it. They realize that it is "alive." Out of the game comes monkeys and lions and storms, and floods. In this version when the parents return home, they wake the children who thought they were dreaming until they look out of the window and see two boys running from the park with the same box under their arm!
