"MATH / VOCABULARY / CLASSIC / IMAGINATION This 1961 book is about a boy who travels through silly lands after receiving a toy tollbooth. I recommend a long family road trip with this in the CD player. (Wizard of Oz type of fantasy NOT at all frightening. "Phantom" is in the title merely because the tollbooth mysteriously appears out of nowhere. Enjoy!"
