Description

The Phantom Tollbooth With almost 4 million copies sold over 50 years after its original publication, generations of readers have now journeyed with Milo to the Lands Beyond in this beloved classic that Philip Pullman says “comes up bright and new every time I read it . . . it will continue to charm and delight for a very long time yet. And teach us some wisdom, too.” Enriched by Jules Feiffer’s splendid illustrations, the wit, wisdom, and wordplay of Norton Juster’s offbeat fantasy are as beguiling as ever.
 
For Milo, everything’s a bore. When a tollbooth mysteriously appears in his room, he drives through only because he’s got nothing better to do. But on the other side, things seem different. Milo visits the Island of Conclusions (you get there by jumping), learns about time from a ticking watchdog named Tock, and even embarks on a quest to rescue Rhyme and Reason. Somewhere along the way, Milo realizes something astonishing. Life is far from dull. In fact, it’s exciting beyond his wildest dreams!

  • The best book in the world!

    “ This book inspires young kids like me to use there imagination and go on wild adventures so they won’t end up in Doldrums. I loved the funny language and people Milo met like Alec Bings and Chroma the Great. The story arc always keeps the journey going with one exciting thing after the other. I was sold as soon as I got to the part when Milo finds the Phantom Tolbooth in his room. The funniest part was the straight up language like ‘jumping to conclusions’. Overall, I love the book I recommend it to both adults and children.”
  • Still a good book

    I’m 16 years old now and I still love this book. It’s very interesting and one of the only books I will only really read(besides Percy Jackson and diary of a wimpy kid even tho those are kid books). This book is actually pretty understandable. As long as you know what’s going on and you’re paying attention, his will most likely be one of your favorite books. It happened to me. I’m not forcing anyone to like it, but to at least be interested in it a little bit. Really good, classic book. And I rarely read books lol.

    To be honest i thought it was going to be boring type book but when I read the first chapter I knew that j was going to like it. It's an amazing book and it's really creative type of book. It makes the reader have to think twice before going to the next sentence. Lol this rating is sooo long too😂

    We had to read this book for 7th grade honors English. We studied the symbolism of the book. Every character,person,place or thing has symbolism to it. Milo represents any one on a journey, to the census taker who represents distractions. So many puns in this book, for adults or middle school up it is great to find and question yourself on symbolism., for example, milo jumps to conclusion and is then sent to a place called conclusions that he can't escape. And for elementary children it is just a fun book. Truly amazing....Savagesquad out😂
