Teaser Tuesdays: The Phantom Tollbooth


I picked up this book because it’s Snubnose’s prescribed school reading next year and I wanted to read it so I can help her when she gets into problems with big words and stuff. No one can say I don’t plan in advance 😉 , I must say though that I find myself enjoying this book quite a bit. It’s quirky, funny, and a little bit mad. Everything I like in a book!

I only treat illnesses that don’t exist: that way, if I can’t cure them, there’s no harm done – just one of the precautions of the trade.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:


  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
