An Interview with Norton Juster for AdLitorg
Publisher: WETA Washington
"It seems to me that almost everything is a waste of time," Milo laments. "[T]here's nothing for me to do, nowhere I'd care to go, and hardly anything worth seeing." And so we are introduced to young (and so very bored) boy named Milo, a tollbooth, and an adventure in a very strange place called Dictionopolis. The world knows and loves "The Phantom Tollbooth," and its creator, Norton Juster — a professional architect who also loved writing delightfully inventive books for children.
