Jumanji by Chris Van Allsburg

A magical board game starts a world of adventure for Peter and Judy. While exploring an old mansion, the youngsters find a curious, jungle-themed game called Jumanji in the attic. 

When they start playing, they free a man named Alan, who's been stuck in the game's inner world for decades. If they win Jumanji, the kids can free Alan for good -- but that means braving giant bugs, ill-mannered monkeys and even stampeding rhinos!
