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.

For 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!
