The Phantom Tollbooth

Recommended Posts

This is one of the best children's books ever. On my list, it's right behind A Series of Unfortunate Events.


So anyway, this kid named Milo (awesome name...) is very very very bored with his life. One day, when he comes home from school, he notices a package. Inside is a tollbooth. Using his car, he ventures into the lands beyond, headed to Dictionopolis. He has many adventures and misadventures, and upon arriving at Dictionopolis, he is given a short sentence ("I am"), with an additional penalty of six million years in jail.


Fortunately for Milo, he escapes and is set upon a quest to return the Princesses Rhyme and Reason to their rightful thrones in Wisdom.



Er...anyway. Read this book. It's absolutely fantastic.
