The Phantom Tollbooth

Milo is a bored child, and if things continue like this, he will become a boring person. One day, a mysterious package arrives at his house. In his boredom, Milo opens the package, finds a tollbooth, drives through it, and is transported to a strange and wonderful place where he meets a watch dog, a humbug, the orchestra that brings color into the world, and the Mathemagician. He also learns to be curious and find joy in learning.
Though The Phantom Tollbooth is marketed as a children’s book, I have given it as a gift to all sorts of people – from the very young to the very old. Full of adventure, word play, metaphors come to life, and just the right amount of silliness, The Phantom Tollbooth is the perfect antidote to the dullness of the daily grind, the best literary medicine for anyone who has perhaps lost Rhyme and Reason.
