Hailed as a classic. . . . humorous, full of warmth and real invention (The New Yorker), this beloved story--first published more than fifty ago--introduces readers to Milo and his adventures in the Lands Beyond.
For Milo, everythings a bore. When a tollbooth mysteriously appears in his room, he drives through only because hes 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, its exciting beyond his wildest dreams. . . .
