Description

For Milo, everything’s a bore. But when a mysterious tollbooth suddenly appears in his bedroom, he gets in the car, pays the toll, and finds himself in the Kingdom of Wisdom.

Milo’s extraordinary voyage takes him into such places as the Land of Expectation, the Doldrums and the Mountains of Ignorance. He is soon set the task of saving the kingdom’s two princesses – Ryme and Reason – who have been exiled to the Castle in the Air. Without the princesses who generally solve all disputes, the kingdom is now in disarray with literally no rhyme or reason.

First published in 1961, The Phantom Tollbooth is full of clever plays on words and puns, such as Tock the watchdog and events that explore the literal meanings of idiomatic expressions.
