Based on the classic novel!

Milo, the boy “who didn’t know what to do with himself,” drives his toy car through a mysterious tollbooth that appears in his bedroom and soon finds himself on an eventful and dangerous quest rescuing the Princesses Rhyme and Reason, who, in the war between words and numbers, have been banished to the Castle in the Air. Milo travels through the Forest of Sight where he experiences different Points of View, accidently leaps to the Island of Conclusions and travels through the Mountains of Ignorance, where he must escape its Demons to save the Princesses. With the help of his steadfast companions, he perseveres and brings Rhyme and Reason home, restoring peace to the realm. Along the way something magical happens to Milo; he discovers the delights of friendship, curiosity and knowledge, and that life — his own life — is filled with endless possibilities. THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH, based on the classic novel written by Norton Juster and illustrated by Jules Feiffer, is considered one of the best 100 children’s books of all time.
