Faintly Macabre and other fanciful creatures...
I read this book for the first time at the age of 12. I fell in love immediately with the characters and intricate wordplay. I am disappointed that this book and Norton Juster isn't as well-known as other children's book authors such as Roald Dahl. The book opens by following a young boy as he lazily trudges through his day. He finds a tollbooth in his room which takes him to a wild fantasy world where ideas and phrases he had or might not have heard before suddenly take on new meaning. Throughout his travels, his way of thinking is changed by the wonderous places and eccentric characters he encounters. I recently purchased a copy and was instantly transformed back to the Land of Rhyme and Reason. This is definitely on my classic list and a must-have for any literary collection.
The Phantom Tollbooth
This has been one of my favorite books since I was a child. It never goes out of style. The main character, Milo, is a normal child - one who is always wanting to be someplace other than where he is. It brings Language and Math into a child's world in a most interesting way. I have purchased this book for many children. This purchase was for my first Child, Miles - who we call Milo. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a great journey.
Going Nowhere? Enjoy a delightful illustrated book that might give you clues to going somewhere.

Norton Juster received (and continues to receive) enormous praise for this original, witty, and oftentimes hilarious novel, first published in 1961. In an introductory "Appreciation" written by Maurice Sendak for the 35th anniversary edition, he states, " The Phantom Tollbooth leaps, soars, and abounds in right notes all over the place, as any proper masterpiece must." Indeed.
As Milo heads toward Dictionopolis he meets with the Whether Man ("for after all it's more important to know whether there will be weather than what the weather will be"), passes through The Doldrums (populated by Lethargarians), and picks up a watchdog named Tock (who has a giant alarm clock for a body). The brilliant satire and double entendre intensifies in the Word Market, where after a brief scuffle with Officer Short Shrift, Milo and Tock set off toward the Mountains of Ignorance to rescue the twin Princesses, Rhyme and Reason. Anyone with an appreciation for language, irony, or Alice in Wonderland -style adventure will adore this book for years on end. (Ages 8 and up)

The Phantom Tollbooth (Paperback)
Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Jules Feiffer (illustrator). Paperback. With almost 5 million copies sold 60 years after its original publication, generations of readers have now journeyed with Milo to the Lands Beyond in this beloved classic. Enriched by Jules Feiffers splendid illustrations, the wit, wisdom, and wordplay of Norton Justers offbeat fantasy are as beguiling as ever. 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. --Phillip PullmanFor Milo, everythings a bore. When a tollbooth mysteriously appears in his room, he drives through only because hes 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, its exciting beyond his wildest dreams! This tale of 10-year-old Milo and his experiences in the "Lands Beyond" has become a modern-day children's classic.

Suzanne Collins captured the world’s attention with her blockbuster Hunger Games trilogy. Now she’s back with a prequel to the thrilling saga. Here, we tell you a bit about about the author, her background, her inspirations, and her favorite books.
Many parents groan as their child picks the same book to read night after night. That one again? This behavior often continues into the teen years. We all had worn copies of favorites that we could practically recite from memory. With so many options available, why do kids gravitate toward the same books over and over?
