With almost 4 million copies sold more than 50 years after its original publication, generations of readers have now journeyed with Milo to the Lands Beyond in this beloved classic. Enriched by Jules Feiffer's splendid illustrations, the wit, wisdom, and wordplay of Norton Juster's offbeat fantasy are as beguiling as ever. "Comes up bright and new every time I read it . . . it will continue to charm and delight for a very long time yet. And teach us some wisdom, too." --Phillip Pullman For Milo, everything's a bore. When a tollbooth mysteriously appears in his room, he drives through only because he's got nothing better to do. But on the other side, things seem different. Milo visits the Island of Conclusions (you get there by jumping), learns about time from a ticking watchdog named Tock, and even embarks on a quest to rescue Rhyme and Reason. Somewhere along the way, Milo realizes something astonishing. Life is far from dull. In fact, it's exciting beyond his wildest dreamsBinding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Norton JusterPublisher: Yearling BooksPublished: 10/12/1988ISBN: 9780394820378Pages: 272Weight: 0.40lbsSize: 7.50h x 5.20w x 0.70dReview Citations: Hornbook Guide to Children 07/01/1996 pg. 69 - Superior,Well Above AverageNewsweek 08/04/2008 pg. 9Entertainment Weekly 07/25/2014 pg. 116Entertainment Weekly 11/20/2015 pg. 118Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 130 / Phantom TollboothReading Level: 6.7 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 7
