Book Review: The Phantom Tollbooth


The Phantom Tollbooth is a gripping book. In short, this boy called Milo who thinks life is boring and it sucks, gets a package one day and theres a tollbooth and a small car inside. Once he drives through he finds himself in a whole new world, with the enemy kingdoms of Dictionopolis and Digitopolis and loads in between.

Personally, I loved the book ‘cuz it’s whacky, weird and has a quirky sense of humor, very much like in Alice in Wonderland. The plot isn’t the most original (main character saves someone and brings the two kingdoms together), but it’s so funny and offbeat that it’s hard to mind.
