A book/DVD by the same author of Jumanji; Zathura takes a similar plot and shifts it into outer space. I especially liked the movie version, there is a great realization by the main character with an excellent ending. Might be kind of scary for younger kids, some of the scenes about space aliens are quite suspenseful.. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Jumanji, Probuditi!, Two Bad Ants, Polar Express.] -- recommended by Jeremiah J. - Bennett Martin Public Library

[Also available in print formats.]
