Book description:

Illustrated in black-and-white. This ingenious fantasy centers around Milo, a bored ten-year-old who comes home to find a large toy tollbooth sitting in his room. Joining forces with a watchdog named Tock, Milo drives through the tollbooth's gates and begins a memorable journey. He meets such characters as the foolish, yet lovable Humbug, the Mathemagician, and the not-so-wicked "Which," Faintly Macabre, who gives Milo the "impossible" mission of returning two princesses to the Kingdom of Wisdom.
Special 35th Anniversary Edition.

Caught this book at the eyestotheskies bookcrossing zone. I have always heard about it, but had never got to read it. It looks really cute and very imaginative, and I realize it is a book for older children, which makes it perfect for me! Thanks, pbjjwall!

I loved this book with all its double entendre and allegory and even a meaningful lesson about why it's important to learn things. A brilliant fantasy and rewarding story for readers of any age! Thanks for sharing this with me, jimmielegs.

Now it's on a new journey to Azuki who will send it to luckaye in her M-Bag.

Received in the mail. This is for the M Bag for luckaye but the burp on the back sounds so interesting I want to read it first!! Now... I didn't realize that hosting a M Bag has such bad impact on my Mt TBR... hmmm, I may need to rethink it...

I am really glad that this book comes to my hands on its way to luckaye and that I have decided to read it first. It is an excellent, very imaginative book, with a lot of wordplay. Like a car in which you have to keep silent as it "goes without saying", or the island called Conclusion where you reach by jumping. My favorite is the boy who was born floating in the air and grew down till his feet touched the ground. He exclaimed when Milo explained that he himself grows up, "what a silly system" that one would be seeing things differently as one got older.

Now this will be mailing off to Luckaye.
