And when he opens it to find - as the label states - One Genuine Turnpike Tollbooth, he gets right into his pedal car and sets off through the Tollbooth and away on a magical journey! Milo's extraordinary voyage takes him into such places as the Land of Expectation, the Doldrums, the Mountains of Ignorance and the Castle in the Air. He meets the weirdest and most unexpected characters (such as Tock, the watchdog, the Gelatinous Giant, and the Threadbare Excuse, who mumbles the same thing over and over again), and, once home, can hardly wait to try out the Tollbooth again. But will it be still there when he gets back from school? This new edition of Norton Juster's classic story includes a special "Why You'll Love This Book" introduction by award-winning author, Diana Wynne Jones.Hide synopsis

Although written for children almost 50 years ago, it reminded me of Alice in Wonderland -- poking fun at politics, bureaucracy, etc. We read it for fun at our book club and it produced some wonderful discussion. If you read it as a child, read it again...
A teacher read this book to my class in elementary and I never forgot it. The story is entertaining and interesting for a reader of any age. It bends the bounds of reality and plays with denotation and connotation. It's a classic that everyone should read more than once.
An instant classic in the mind of any child, this book really does add on to the "learning can be fun" theme. I definitely recommend this book for 5th-7th graders at least, because it can definitely give them a jump start on a new chapter of education in their life. It's about a boy who cannot appreciate ...
