Have you ever dreamed of an adventure? Milo has done more than just dream. The Phantom Tollbooth is about a boy who finds the meaning of life. Milo, the main character, who doesn't have a clue how hard it is in the real world, ends up in a place you would never imagine. But I can't give away anymore. My lips are sealed and locked. This would be the book for YOU!
This book is adventurous and exciting. I get hooked every time I read it. There are parts that aren't so good, but the whole book is good in all ways. I loved it and I think you will love it, too. Parts I liked were when Milo was in Dictionopolis, the doldrums, and his final destination that I can't tell. The illustrations were so detailed and descriptive it made me feel like I was really in the story. This book is like no book I've ever read. After every chapter I read, it left me hanging. That made me read more! It was so good I bought my own copy!
I think all ages could read this book. I recommend this book because it's adventurous, exciting, and humorous. What interested me most about the book was that when I read it, I was hooked. There is just something about the book that makes me read it a lot. I hope you enjoy it.
