The Phantom Tollbooth

$5.00

We are amazed at how often we return to The Phantom Tollbooth, Norton Juster’s classic kid’s book that is celebrating 50 years of stunning popularity. It’s the story of Milo, a bored ten-year-old who comes home to find a large toy tollbooth sitting in his room. In his rarely-used kid’s-size car, he embarks on a surprising journey through a mysterious landscape, Beyond Expectations through Mountains of Ignorance, The Forest of Sight, Illusions, Reality and Dictionopolis to the Sea of Knowledge. Rich with strange, true wisdom, it’s WAY more than a kid’s book. Our ancient copy is dappled with post-its marking many bits of brilliance that curiously resonates with Improvised Life.

Paired with delectably weird yet heartwarming doodles by Jules Feiffer (a Pulitzer-winning cartoonist and long-time children’s illustrator), this book is an absolute must-have in any kid’s library––it’ll stay in their minds long after they’ve grown.
