Top 100 Children's Novels: 10

Number 10:
The Phantom Tollbooth,
by Norton Juster.

This one was on the top-ten list I submitted to Betsy, though I had it at #7 - but then my list was all just a bunch of WAGs, anyway. I read it long ago ('67 or '68, I think), and as I recall I enjoyed it. I've long been of the opinion that the English language is the greatest toy ever invented, and this book's full of wordplay. Going to have to borrow it from the library again, I think....
