Especially if you are an incorrigible punster (do not incorrige), read this book. It is well worth it.
This book explores English and mathematics, and connects them together in a world of their own. A world filled with puns and wordplay.
Milo is filled with ennui, and can find nothing that interests or excites him. The arrival of a cardboard tollbooth and little electric car send him into a world of adventure and exploration where his expectations are overturned.
His traveling companion is Tock, a dog with a clock in it's middle. He turns out to be both lovable, and offers often dry comments on the situation at hand. I never warmed up to the Humbug, who seemed to me to be part snake oil salesman. Yet he has his lovable moments.
If you have not read this book to your child, or have not given it to him or her to read on their own, then I think they are sadly deprived children.
I try to read this book 2 or 3 times a year just to remind myself of some fundamental "Life 101" lessons. Thank you, Norton Juster.
