Description
Hailed as "a classic. . . . humorous, full of warmth and real invention" (The New Yorker), this beloved story—first published more than fifty ago—introduces readers to Milo and his adventures in the Lands Beyond. 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. . . ."I read [The Phantom Tollbooth] first when I was ten. I still have the book report I wrote, which began 'This is the best book ever.'" —The New York Times"The Phantom Tollbooth is the closest thing we have to a modern Alice in Wonderland." —The Guardian"The book lingers long after turning the final page. . . . A classic indeed." —Los Angeles Review of Books"You loved the humor and adventure . . . and [now] you'll marvel at [the book's] wit, complexity, and its understanding of how children perceive the passage of time." —Entertainment Weekly

shortDescription
Hailed as "a classic. . . . humorous, full of warmth and real invention" (The New Yorker), this beloved story—first published more than fifty ago—introduces readers to Milo and his adventures in the Lands Beyond.

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. . . .

      • content: David Hyde Pierce delivers an imaginative narration of this unforgettable family listen. Milo is unenthusiastic about life until he receives a mysterious gift--a tollbooth that becomes his portal to strange lands. The fantasy journey kicks off as Pierce presents the Whether Man, who speaks so quickly that listeners, like Milo, won't know whether they're coming or going. Switching pace, Pierce and Milo next steer listeners into the Doldrums. There, Pierce stretches out each word, punctuating his reading with yawns until listeners, like Milo, are too sleepy to function. Throughout the story Pierce provides superb characterizations and faultless timing, transporting listeners with wordplay, steering them through slapstick, and thrilling them at every twist and turn of Milo's adventures.

      • content: Actor Rainn Wilson displays his vocal talents with an enchanting performance of this imaginative classic children's novel. An introduction read by the author sets up the tale of Milo, a child who is always bored with life's offerings, and his adventures through a magical tollbooth to the Lands Beyond. With an engaging delivery, Wilson succeeds in captivating listeners. Soothing tones and even pacing aid the flow of the story as Milo and his companions journey on a rescue mission through the Lands Beyond. One can easily imagine a family enjoying the story together at bedtime. This is a thoroughly clever tale enhanced by a gifted narrator. A.L.S.M. � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
