TGIF–Literary Vacation

hosted by: GReads

Literary Vacations: If you could take a trip this summer to any place within a fictional book, where would you go? Tell us about your summer dream vacation!

Easy question. The island of Conclusions from Norton Juster’s The Phantom Tollbooth.

The Phantom Tollbooth

Summary: 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...

Probably one of the most interesting places I’ve ever seen in a book. As much as I love fantasy and dystopian and vampire and zombie novels, I can’t think any of them would be a good place to go. They’d be dangerous.

But I’d love to meet Tock and Rhyme and Reason!
