Reviews

On the twentieth anniversary of Jumanji, Van Allsburg picks up right where his Caldecott Medal book left off, with similarly terrifying adventure set this time in outer space. Booklist, ALA, Starred Review "Van Allsburg illustrates the surreal events in a grainy charcoal-black that seems to shimmer on a rough, cream-colored ground...Zathura, like Jumanji, is a satisfying enigma." Publishers Weekly "Van Allsburg is a terrific illustrator, and his images here, including one where the boys open their front door and are greeted with a breathtaking views of the cosmos, are memorable." The New York Times Book Review "The angles of view, are, as always, wonderfully dramatic..." Kirkus Reviews "The shadowy black-and-white tones of Van Allsburg's illustration recall 1950's science-fiction films..." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "One can't help but anticipating the encore." School Library Journal
