Stacy Recommends ~The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster

The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
             
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...

Stacy Says: This book has now been added to my top five/four favorites list. I believe that this book should be read by children and adults across the land. It is filled with adventure and life. I have few words to describe the way I feel about this book besides the fact that everyone should read this book.
