Download and read online The Phantom Tollbooth in PDF and EPUB With almost 4 million copies sold over 50 years after its original publication, generations of readers have now journeyed with Milo to the Lands Beyond in this beloved classic that Philip Pullman says “comes up bright and new every time I read it . . . it will continue to charm and delight for a very long time yet. And teach us some wisdom, too.” Enriched by Jules Feiffer’s splendid illustrations, the wit, wisdom, and wordplay of Norton Juster’s offbeat fantasy are as beguiling as ever. For Milo, everything’s a bore. When a tollbooth mysteriously appears in his room, he drives through only because he’s got nothing better to do. But on the other side, things seem different. Milo visits the Island of Conclusions (you get there by jumping), learns about time from a ticking watchdog named Tock, and even embarks on a quest to rescue Rhyme and Reason. Somewhere along the way, Milo realizes something astonishing. Life is far from dull. In fact, it’s exciting beyond his wildest dreams!

Download and read online Ready Reference Treatise The Phantom Tollbooth in PDF and EPUB Milo, the protagonist, goes through several adventures, and eventually rescues the princesses of the kingdom, Princess Rhyme and Princess Reason, from the Castle in the Air. The text teems with puns. There are several events that become the examples of the literal meanings of English language idioms. One such example is the protagonist’s jump to the Island of Conclusions. The author once said that his father was very much fond of puns. He got that skill from his father. Likewise, The Marx Brother’s movies also greatly influenced the author during his youth. It is noticeable that the novel has been translated into several languages.
