Lindsay Waite, August 20, 2012 (view all comments by Lindsay Waite)
Young Milo is bored. One day he receives a mysterious package and it is not even Christmas or his birthday. He opens it up and finds parts of a turnpike tollbooth. Instructions begin: "Easily assembled at home, and for use by those who have never traveled in lands beyond." Since Milo has nothing else to do,he puts it together. With some skepticism about whether he will have fun, he enters the tollbooth and passes through to incredible places. Published in New York City in 1961, and illustrated by Jules Feiffer, "The Phantom Tollbooth" has been enjoyed by parents and children for over 50 years now. Milo encounters a watchdog, a large creature perfectly normal except for his body - a ticking clock. In Dictionopolis, Milo goes to the Word Market where five "tall, thin gentlemen regally dressed" talk one after the other: "Greetings!" "Salutations!" "Welcome!" "Good Afternoon!" 'Hello!" Later, as Milo asks whether the words they are saying mean the same thing, they respond: "Of course." "Certainly." "Precisely." "Exactly." "Yes." Readers will find the Humbug, the Gorgons of Hate and Malice, the Demons of Ignorance and other smart and funny characters in this fantastical world. Enjoy, as a young person, and again as an adult.
