About This Item

New York: Random House, 1961. EARLY EDITION. Very Good HARDCOVER w/Good- DJ. DJ is heavily worn, with many small rips and creases, and larger tears on spine and inner flap. Price cut out of inner flap (very artfully). DJ is totally intact, however, and a protective sleeve has been placed to prevent further damage. Book is in excellent shape. Clean with a tight binding. We're unsure just what edition this is, but it's early. Black boards with white ink. No price indication. Reviews on back cover.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good-. Illus. by Feiffer, Julius. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Synopsis

The Phantom Tollbooth is a children's adventure novel and a modern fairy tale published in 1961, written by Norton Juster and illustrated by Jules Feiffer. It tells the story of a bored young boy named Milo who unexpectedly receives a magic tollbooth one afternoon and, having nothing better to do, drives through. He finds himself in the Kingdom of Wisdom. There he accepts a quest to rescue the princesses of the kingdom, acquires two faithful companions, and has many adventures.

This is one of my favorite books. It is a VERY funny and clever story about a journey through strange lands. The book is full of puns, wordplay and weirdness.
