Reviews

Praise for `The Phantom Tollbooth':
"Think Alice in Wonderland for the modern age. Brilliant." Guardian

"The most unpredictable, the most stimulating children's book I have read for a very long time. Words, numbers, cliches, proverbs are taken literally, imaginatively or punningly in an enthralling and very funny dazzle of mental fireworks." The Sunday Times

"An altogether remarkable book, one that should delight any bright child, and that will be no burden for a parent to read aloud. Related with unflagging wit and a marvellous sense of the fun to be had with words, this book will be enjoyed by children for years to come." Spectator
