Book Title: The Phantom Tollbooth

Author: Jules Feiffer

Book Description:

This outstanding children's book was one of my favorites at an early age. It embraces the idea that learning and exploration can be enriching and entertaining, trusts children to understand a variety of wordplay and clever references, and does not shy away from intellect. In an era when too many people are taught that math or language or just academic achievement are "not for them," this is a book that all parents should share with their kids.
