Is the boy's character based on you as a child? Kyle G. Do you believe in magic? I believe that there will be many things that happen to me in my life that I will not be able to explain. Some of those might be magic. I'm not sure. Why did you choose a train instead of something sort of magical? Trains are very magical, and I didn't choose the train; the train chose me. How did you get the idea for Jumanji? When I was a little boy and I would play games like Monopoly, they seemed kind of exciting, but when I was done with the game, all I had was fake money.

Why don't you put parents in most of your books? They are often very strange adventures. I remember as a child, that it was always easier to have an adventure if my mom and dad weren't along.

I don't know. That might be captain in The Wretched Stone because sometimes I feel like I am a captain on a ship with a crew that won't listen to me. Why do you put your dog in all your books? When I draw things, I like to have models, to look at the thing I am drawing. So the dog that I wanted was a bull terrier, but unfortunately, I did not know one.

My brother-in-law wanted to download a dog at that time, and I talked him into getting a bull terrier. Now I had my model. Not long after I finished the book, Winston was, I am sorry to say, hit by a car.

Because I was thankful to Winston for the help he'd given me, I decided that I would have him in each of my books. It might be a computer screen. It might be anything that keeps you from using your own imagination. What is your favorite hobby other than writing?

I like tennis and riding my bike and kicking my computer around. How did you learn to draw? When I was in first grade, I drew the kinds of things my friends would draw. And we decided to draw cartoon characters.

But my specialty was Dagwood Bumstead. He was a character in a cartoon called Blondie. Dagwood loved to eat very, very big sandwiches. Not only could I draw Dagwood, but I could draw the very big sandwiches. As I got older, I didn't spend so much of my time drawing as I did building model cars and model planes. And then when I went to college, I made sculpture.

And then I started writing books after I got out of college and I really taught myself how to draw. Of all of the books you've written, do you have a favorite? When people ask me which of my books is my favorite, I always tell them that it is my next book. The reason my next book will be my favorite is because I believe it will be better than all the ones I've done before. If it weren't, I wouldn't bother to do it.

Do you have a favorite author other than yourself? A favorite book that has inspired you? The book that I remember best from my own childhood is a very simple book that doesn't have very fancy drawings in it but has a wonderful and simple story.

It is called Harold and the Purple Crayon. Why are your pictures so peculiar? Because I am so peculiar. Or at least my ideas about what makes an interesting picture are a little peculiar. I don't think ordinary things are very interesting, so I try to imagine a world that is less ordinary.

How can you come up with ideas? I mean, I can barely come up with my ideas for books. Taking the game home, they find a warning message; "Do not begin unless you intend to finish".


Ignoring the warning, they start to play. The pair soon discovers that any dangers encountered in the game spring to life somewhere in the house. For example, when Peter rolls on a lion, a real lion appears, which Judy and Peter trap in their mother's bedroom.

Judy rolls on a stampede, Peter rolls on a monsoon, and Judy rolls on an explorer—and each appears in real life to wreak havoc in the house. Still they continue to play, hoping that if they finish the game everything will go back to normal. The game finally ends when Judy rolls a volcano and yells "Jumanji! In an instant everything is back to normal and the siblings quickly return to the park and abandon the game before their parents return.
