Zathura - Chris Van Allsburg

(saw at Waldenbooks)
I've always liked Van Allsburg's drawings, and usually the stories as well. This book was sort of a spin-off of Jumanji with a space theme, and I didn't care for it as much. It's got a lesson in there about being nice to your siblings, but it's a pretty short book and it didn't really feel like a lot was happening. The drawings, as usual, were excellent, but this is one of my least favorites of his.
