Chances are you're familiar with The Princess Bride movie, but way fewer people have read author William Goldman's book. Let me just say that it takes a strikingly different tone than the movie.

    Phantom Tollbooth is my favorite book hands down and Last Unicorn is a close second! Princess bride is also a hard one to beat. You got this down!

    I have this exact edition! I bought mine for a pittance from a chaotic used book shop in my high school town. It's a great title.
