Another case of "I-saw-the-movie-was-there-a-book?"
This is another case of I-saw-the-movie-was-there-a-book? and I'm grateful for these little gems. Peter and Judy (brother and sister, unlike the movie version) are two slightly bored children who find a board game outside their house. They bring it in and start playing it, only to have a huge surprise. I highly recommend this for the kids. It has a cool game, dangerous animals and a happy ending. Also, it's short enough that you'll keep their attention until the very end.
