Phantom Toll Booth Book


I didn't read this book until I had children of my own, but I remember it being popular with kids when I was a kid.

Recently, I wrote a piece about expectations, quoting the book, and was surprised that no one had read it, or seemed to have heard of it.

Have you read it? Do you love it?

No, that is one I have not heard of so therefore, have not read.
Although I collect old children's books, I would assume that this one is not a vintage book, and that is possibly why I have not seen it?

First published in 1961, so not sure if that's vintage or not...

Yes I would call that vintage however have not heard of it -a lot of mine were first published around 1920 so perhaps that is why I have not heard of it

I read it for the first time a couple of years ago (as an adult). It's a terrific book, one that I think most kids should read. I was actually sad I didn't read it as a kid, as I know it would have been an instant favourite with me. Even as an adult though I loved it.
I read it as a kid and I know I liked it but I don't remember much about it. Thanks for reminding me about it. My daughter is about the right age now.
I haven't read the book, but I recognise the style of the illustration.
