I found my favorite book early. My sister forced me to read The Phantom Tollbooth, by Norton Juster, when I was six and I have read it once every other year or so since. As I get older, the book ages with me, revealing new ideas on what it means to be clever, to be a hero, to have an adventure. Milo’s journey to bring peace to the warring kingdoms of Dictionopolis and Digitopolis are woven brilliantly into a tale about making the most of one’s time. Juster’s wordplay shines, and there is no foe more fierce than the Terrible Trivium, no friend more loyal than Tock the Watchdog. It’s my favorite book because I cannot pick my favorite part.
