Publisher Comments:

This is the 35th anniversary edition of Juster's ingenious fantasy that introduces young readers to Milo, a bored ten-year-old who comes home to find a large toy tollbooth sitting in his room. Milo drives through the tollbooth's gates and begins a memorable journey. Joining forces with the watchdog Tock, he meets the Mathemagician, the not-so-wicked "which", and Faintly Macabre, who tells Milo of his "impossible" mission to return two princesses to the Kingdom of Wisdom.
