Point of View, Narrative Voice:

The fictional narrative is written by Norton Juster and is accompanied by whimsical illustrations by Jules Feiffer. Originally published in 1961 the story is told by an external narrator as it follows the trials and tribulations of the protagonist Milo.

Tone: The tone of this book is a light one, there are appropriate and child friendly themes for children of all ages throughout the story. However the language is quite advanced and should be explained before reading each chapter. There are a multitude of morals and messages that are still highly relevant for children and adults in today’s fast paced society.

Setting: The story begins as Milo walks aimlessly home from school. He soon discovers a magical tollbooth which transports him to a mysterious land. The majority of the story takes place in this foreign land as Milo visits new kingdoms, islands and forests and learns valuable lessons along the way.

How to use: Before each chapter explain or ask students to investigate the vocabulary. I then read the chapter or call on student volunteers. After that, students answer three comprehension questions focused on retrieval, inferencing and the authors choice before completing the activity ideas. Enjoy!
