The Caldecott Medal-winning masterpiece - personally signed by Chris Van Allsburg.

Chris Van Allsburg's ascent in the world of children's books could hardly have been more rapid. A trained sculptor who turned to illustrating at his wife's suggestion, Van Allsburg's very first effort was named a Caldecott Honor book, and in 1982, his second, Jumanji, won the field's highest honor, the Caldecot Medal.

Today Chris Van Allsburg is regarded as one of the preeminent picture book creators of our age, while Jumanji has attained the status of a true classic and masterpiece. Indeed, in 2013 the New York Public Library named Jumanji one of 100 Great Children's Books of the last 100 years.

Now, Easton Press is proud to present a unique edition of this modern illustrated book classic – JUMANJI, an exclusive leather-bound Collector Edition personally autographed by the author and artist, Chris Van Allsburg.

“A potent vision that lingers on and on.” -- Booklist.


“The idea of the extraordinary happening in the context of the ordinary is what's fascinating to me,” says Chris Van Allsburg, and no book better captures this spirit than does Jumanji, in which two bored children find a board game only to discover it's not entirely a game: anything a player encounters in the game – a lion, a monsoon, a volcano – comes to life in the children's house.

And as always with Van Allsburg, the illustrations are as original, surreal, and magical as the story. Here his extraordinary Conté crayon illustrations combine intense realistic detail and unusual evocative perspectives to create images that are both real and fantastic and spur the reader's imagination.

“Mr. Van Allsburg's illustrations have a beautiful simplicity of design, balance, [and] texture, and a subtle intelligence beyond the call of illustration,” writes The New York Times. “"Illustrated by ... pictures that are so infinitely detailed in three dimensions that they appear to move, breathe, and makes sounds,” declares Publishers Weekly.
