Mysterious and mystical jungle adventure board game Mr Van Allsburg's illustrations have a beautiful simplicit. Two children find a board game and take it home it looks a bit boring but when they start playing they find it's than they bargained for I really liked the idea but it was so short and could have had much detail put into to the storyline and the characters I haven't seen the film but I expect it put a lot in and was successful for that The black and white illustrations were nice enoughRead on open library
