Classics With a Twist - Phantom Tollbooth
This time around, we'll be delving into The Phantom Tollbooth, about Milo, who drives his toy car through a phantom tollbooth and heads toward adventure. "You'd think a fantasy this trippy woulda been written in the seventies," writes Tim Federle, in Tequila Mockingbird. While we discuss this childhood classic, we'll be sipping on the Phantom Tolljuice, a concoction reminiscent of the mysterious "bug juice" from summer camps everywhere. (The drink involves kool-aid ice cubes and club soda ... and unlike many of the drinks in Tim's books, it's nonalcoholic, though it still sounds tasty.)
Book club host Theresa Hegel will provide the drinks, you provide the discussion!
