Group Read: The Phantom Tollbooth à The Green Dragon (Novembre 2016)

Critiques

I don’t remember this book as I was a child, but decided to read it as I was told it was “can’t miss”. It was a very clever book with a similar feel to Alice in Wonderland. I loved all the puns and word play, as well as the lessons it tries to teach. I did enjoy it, but I felt it was missing a plot. Milo is bored and goes through the Phantom Tollbooth and…just meets a lot of interesting, but maybe not memorable characters?? I do think this would be a great read aloud, especially in a classroom setting.… (plus d'informations)

I know this is supposed to be a sweet story about a young girl and her time spent at her grandparent's house (and it is!), but the text was way too long for the age this was intended for.

This was my very favorite book when I was a kid and rereading it as an adult was just as magical. It makes you want to have so many adventures and learn everything there is to learn. I may have even gotten a bit misty eyed remembering how much this story had always meant to me. A must read for everyone everywhere.

I read this book because I saw Dominic Noble do a "Lost in adaptation" episode comparing this book to the Chuck Jones cartoon and for some reason reacted to that with "Chuck Jones is one of my favourite animators, I Should read the book that inspired that cartoon of his that i have never seen or heard of until now"reaching

anyway, I found the book very clever and I appreciated the wordplay commitment
