The Phantom Tollbooth
Author: Norton Juster
Read By: Rainn Wilson and Norton Juster
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. . . .

“How would the synonym-happy, word-loving residents of Dictionopolis describe Rainn Wilson’s narration of this new audio version of Juster’s classic allegorical fantasy romp (Knopf, 1961)? Superlative! Glorious! Marvelous! The sterling Wilson brings joy to his telling of this episodic tale of Milo…This first-rate production will please both fans revisiting this classic and those enjoying the story for the first time. Bravo! Well done! Encore!” —Booklist, starred review

“A classic… Humorous, full of warmth and real invention.”
The New Yorker
