Book Club - The Phantom Tollbooth
This event is free for our students age 9 to 12
***There will be spoilers in the discussion, so perhaps better not to attend if you are halfway through or thinking of reading it.*** The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. Full of humour, word-play, absurdity and poking fun at everything from mathematics to police officers. This book is an entertaining fantasy story of a boy as he journeys to such strange places such as Dictionopolis, starves from eating subtraction soup. At the same time, it's a sort of puzzled and puzzling account of the process of education. A bit like Alice in Wonderland but rather funnier, it's surprising it's not an "everybody's read it" in the UK. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Phantom-Tollbooth-Norton-Juster/dp/0394820371 Link to buy online while supporting your high street: https://www.hive.co.uk/Product/Norton-Juster/The-Phantom-Tollbooth/25846
