Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle now Sony's highest grossing film of all time
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 for the first time.
This special edition of Jumanji contains a downloadable audiobook of the renowned actor Robin Williams reading the timeless tale.
