Bob Smith | 2 comments I read this book in the late 80s, early 90s. Not sure when it was published.

This is a fantasy about a boy who climbed into a city garden and ends up touching a statue (I believe), and is transported into a different world. He then finds the 'statue' in that world, and gets transported to another world. His quest is to find his way back to his own home world to see his family again. He does run into other travelers as well. Each world is essentially a game run by a being of some sort.

I read this as a young teen, and would love to know the title to be able to share with my kids.

Thanks for the help!
