Have you ever wondered what a world of school subjects would be like? Say, there was a city called Dictionopolis and one called Digitopolis? And people named Rhyme and Reason? Well, you should read The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. It is all about a boy named Milo who drives through a tollbooth and goes to a magical place where he is expected to save the two princesses, Rhyme and Reason, from the Castle in the Air in the Mountains of Ignorance. On the way he meets the Humbug, Alec Bings, the Giant, and more. Finally, when he reaches the Mountains of Ignorance, he is sidetracked by evil demons and might not survive. Will Milo save the princesses? Will he stay alive? Will he go home?
I love this book because it is crazy and genius at the same time. I really recommend this book!!!
