Happy Birthday Chris VanAllsburg!

VanAllsburg, Chris.
Houghton Mifflin Company.
Guided Reading Level: M

Through the use of surrealistic pictures, those experienced in dreams and nightmares, Van Allsburg turns an ordinary, boring night at home into an adventure of a lifetime. When Judy and Peter find a board game in the park and start playing they experience firsthand a flood, a stampede, a volcano and more!

Kids are definitely going to love this one... it wasn't typically something I'd pick out for myself, but I'm so glad I read it!
