The Phantom Tollbooth is a children's fantasy adventure novel written by Norton Juster It tells the story of a bored young boy named Milo who unexpectedly receives a magic tollbooth one afternoon and, having nothing better to do, drives through it in his toy car, transporting him to the Kingdom of Wisdom. It is hysterical, and cleverly written.
This study guide spotlights the areas of comprehension, vocabulary, and writing. The students are expected to write a personal narrative, put events in sequence, write an event from a different point of view,draw conclusions, make inferences, summarize, write a letter, and determine cause and effect. The questions are in the form of short answer, extended response, T or F, multiple choice, and sequencing. Since The Phantom Tollbooth is one big "play on words," there are also many vocabulary worksheets. I'd appreciate it if you evaluated my work.
