Product Description

Make your way through the Doldrums and journey through the city of Dictionopolis, where the world's letters are bought and sold!

Milo--a very bored little boy--must rescue the twin princesses Rhyme and Reason, who have been banished for agreeing that numbers and letters are equally important. Reaching the Kingdom of Wisdom through the Phantom Tollbooth (which he assembles and enters because he has nothing better to do), Milo encounters a fanciful world filled with puns and imaginative places based on literalized English idioms...and when he returns, he finds the world a rather more engaging place for the wisdom he's learned.

Publisher's Description

Illustrated in black-and-white. We're celebrating the thirty-fifth anniversary (1996) of this modern kids' classic with a special hardcover edition! This ingenious fantasy centeres around Milo, a bored ten-year-old who comes home to find a large toy tollbooth sitting in his room. Joining forces with a watchdog named Tock, Milo drives through the tollbooth's gates and begins a memorable journey. He meets such characters as the foolish, yet lovable Humbug, the Mathemagician, and the not-so-wicked "Which," Faintly Macabre, who gives Milo the "impossible" mission of returning two princesses to the Kingdom of Wisdom...
