Phantom Tollbooth

If you have read the book Phantom Tollbooth, give a convincing argument for reading this book




 The Phantom Tollbooth is an exellent book!  Adventure is on every page.  It messes with the English language.  An example is the sea of knowledge.  If someome is smart, you would say they have a sea of knowledge.  In this book, it is actully a sea with water.  Names are also like that.  The Which is an example.  The book takes idioms and turns them into people, lands, and creatures.








            I think Norton Juster wrote The Phantom Tollbooth with lots of thought.

He made it like you could actually see the mysterious tollbooth in Milo’s small apartment room. He is an amazing author.

I enjoyed his book, and i hope you do too.

            The Phantom Tollbooth is a very holding book. Milo, who is the main character, loves to do nothing until an unexpected package shows up in his room. He doesn’t have anything to do (then or ever) and puts the machine, a tollbooth, together. He finds a map, some coins, a rulebook, and even a small car. The instructions had him pick a location and enter a very strange world that he knows nothing about. Soon he stops paying attention to where he is going, and ends up in the doldrums. After a while he meets a watchdog named Tock that helps him leave and go to Dictionopolis where Milo gets greatly confused and receives a strange quest. In Digitopolis he enters an awkward spelling bee. Wondering in this strange land Milo learns some valuable lessons, and earns some strange friends. He overcomes the dark demons. Never again will Milo waste his time.

 The book, The Phantom Tollbooth, is a fabulous book, if you like to read mystery, adventure, imaginary, and hilarious books this is a wonderful book for you, especially if you like adventure silliness. In the book a kid named Milo thinks everything is dull and a waste of time, until a mysterious box appears in his room, and inside is a tollbooth, a car, two coins, and a map of the Kingdom of Wisdom. With these it take’s him to the kingdom, and he meets many people. The Phantom Tollbooth is the book to read.







 The Phantom tollbooth is an exciting and adventurous book about friends and life. It taught me a lesson. That lesson is life is short and you should enjoy it while it lasts! Norton Juster is a great author and used amazing words and sentences in this book. If you read this you won't  be sorry! 





 The phantom tollbooth is an amazing adventur and a great story. I never wanted to put the book down and read chapters at a time. I couldn’t wait until the end to find out what happens to Milo, the main character. The book is very funny and interesting. I loved this book from the moment I started to read this book. I would read this book over and over again. When I Picked up this book I wanted to I finish it that day.





  The Phantom Tollbooth has tons of vivid language and lots of figurative language packed into every paragraph!It has hilarious and breathe taking events, which occur  in different parts of the book, I definantly that everyone looks at things in differant ways , so you  can  not judge  people for what they think. I also learned  that friendship matters  immensely when you are in  trouble  or in needof someone to  talk to . It taught me that you should get as much out of life while you still can.M.L.
