Eight of the best book quotes from Peter (Jumanji)
″‘JUMANJI,’ Judy read from the box, ‘A JUNGLE ADVENTURE GAME.’ ‘Look,’ said Peter, pointing to a note taped to the bottom of the box. In a childlike handwriting were the words, ‘Free game, fun for some but not for all. P.S. Read instructions carefully.‘”
″‘I don’t think,’ said Peter in between gasps of air, ‘that I want... to play... this game... anymore.‘”

″‘Monsoon season begins, lose one turn.’ Little raindrops began to fall in the living room. Then a roll of thunder shook the walls and scared the monkeys out of the kitchen.”
″‘Did you have an exciting afternoon?’ ‘Oh yes,’ said Peter. ‘We had a flood, a stampede, a volcano, I got sleeping sickness, and-’ Peter was interrupted by the adults’ laughter.”
″‘Lion attacks, move back two spaces,’ read Judy. ‘Gosh how exciting,’ said Peter, in a very unexcited voice. ‘Peter,’ she whispered, ‘turn around very, very slowly.‘”
“The boy turned in his chair. He couldn’t believe his eyes. Lying on the piano was a lion, staring at Peter and licking his lips.”
