Phantom Tollbooth (The) Focus Guide


The Phantom Tollbooth

By Norton Juster

When a mysterious tollbooth appears in Milo's bedroom, he drives through only because he has nothing better to do.  On the other side, he encounters situations and places he's never dreamed existed. How will his experiences change him for life in the real world?

Barbara's Notes: I enjoy offering titles with humor and especially those that relate an important message through the humor. The focus guide teaches a 5-step writing process and includes scripture application and a smidgen of map reading.
