The Phantom Tollbooth, by Norton Juster


A delightful read, full of humor and whimsy. If you have a fondness for words, it is quite likely that you will enjoy this book. In his "Appreciation," Maurice Sendak compares The Phantom Tollbooth to Alice in Wonderland; he is not mistaken.

Also, Norton Juster's opinions to the contrary notwithstanding, the Chuck Jones movie is quite good.
