    The Phantom Tollbooth--one of the cleverest and funniest children's books I've read. Milo travels through the Doldrums, the kingdom of words and the kingdom of mathematics on a pun-filled quest to return princesses Rhyme and Reason to the world. I reread it a few years ago and discovered more in it than I'd ever noticed as a kid. Definitely worth keeping in the older elementary, maybe even middle school classroom.

"If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her.
