The Phantom Tollbooth

I decided to add a book of fiction to my current reading list.  There is nothing quite like jumping into a fun little story, meeting quirky characters and visiting some place new.

I first read The Phantom Tollbooth when I was young and think it's just fantastic.  It's a story that will certainly inspire creativity!  With characters such as Tock the watchdog, the Whether Man, and princesses Rhyme and Reason, and places like Dictionopolis and the Market Place (where there are, "juicy, tempting words for sale") how could it not?

I encourage you to pick it up.  You can find it here if you like.

Happy reading!
