Books That Made Me: The Phantom Tollbooth

In this latest instalment of the Books That Made Me Series, Matilda Houston-Brown discusses the children’s classic The Phantom Tolbooth. To her the book is memorable not only due to its amazingly quirkly characters, perfect puns and cutting-edge comedy but also because it taught her to love learning – a lesson she argues is important for every child.
