I think The Phantom Tollbooth is an exciting adventure; it has some very interesting characters. I liked it a lot because it is adventurous story. The meaning of the story is not to think life is boring or you won't have friends or fun. My favorite part is when Milo, Tock, and Humbug are running away from the monsters that live in the mountains of Ignorance. It is my favorite part because the story describes all the monsters and there is suspense. The characters that I found interesting are Milo, Tock, Humbug, and Mathemagician.
In the book my sister's day is like Milo's life because in the book Milo starts out bored and boring and my sister starts the day bored and boring and for the rest of the day is happy and fun.
I recommend this book because I liked it and it may be good for kids who need a motivation through life. Something in the book that interested me is the play-on-words. So read The Phantom Tollbooth.
