The New Yorker has a great article on Norton Juster, the author of The Phantom Toolbooth. My Mom bought me the book on one of her trips to UNC Chapel Hill for a class, I read it over and over, and still love it. I hope just one of my kids can enjoy it as much as I did.

Milo, Tock (the watchdog), Officer Shrif, Unabridged , King Azaz,  the Humbug,  Alec Bings, Terrible Trivium and the Senses Taker were all good friends.

Hope others out there have fond memories as well.
