|Title:||The Phantom Tollbooth|
A fantastic book. Very highly recommended. I know it's a kid's book and all, but it's worth the read, just to see how someone can think like this, discarding all our standard notions of where everyday concepts come from.
I'm also a dog lover, and Tock is wonderful.
This one goes to my nephew very, very soon, and I hope to be able to read some of it to him, or with him.
