For Milo, everything's a bore. When a mysterious tollbooth appears in his room, he drives through only because he's got nothing better to do. But on the other side, things seem different. Milo visits the island of Conclusions (you get there by jumping), learns about time from a ticking watchdog named Tock, and goes up against the dastardly Discord and Dynne. By the time Milo and Tock set off toward the Mountains of Ignorance to rescue the twin Princesses, Rhyme and Reason, Milo realizes something astonishing. Life is far from dull. In fact, it's exciting beyond his wildest dreams . . .

Performed by David Hyde Pierce

  • Perfect. Price a bit high.

  • My older kids have all read the book and my 9-year-old wanted to do a book report on it based on her siblings reviews of it. Unfortunately, she was having trouble sounding out some of the words and it was taking longer than she'd hoped. She had gotten about 2/3 of the way through the book when we got the audio CDs and used them as a read-along. We have several copies of the book, so we all sat down and listened and read along with the book! It was perfect.

    The audio CDs are unabridged, so it was word for word with the paperback. The narration was great and she was able to hear the words she had struggled with (she listened to the entire thing just to be sure she understood everything she'd read up to that point). She finished the book with just enough time to write a book report (A-) and take the AR test, on which she got 100%. I'm very satisfied with our purchase.

  • Well read. A must hear after reading the book.

  • My five-year old grandson loves this CD. He replays it constantly. I think this will be one of his favorites. He listens to a lot of CD stories during his quiet time and this one has moved to the top of his list. The Seller I bought this through was exceptional and I give the seller 5 stars as well!

  • This has always been a favorite book, and David Hyde Pierce does a wonderful job of bringing it to life. Also love the interview with the author!

  • I purchased this auto book for my grandchildren to listen too on a road trip. It has 4 discs. The first three worked well, but the forth disk wouldn't play. I have three very upset grandchildren.

  • This book did not disappoint. It is a great book for 5th graders. I used the CD to accommodate some of my more challenged readers. It is nice for them to hear the book aloud and helped them comprehend it better.

  • Enjoyed listening to this in the car. The narrator doesn't nice job of using a variety of pleasing voices. I was glad that my six-year-old had the book to read along with because so much of the story is dependent upon visual plays on words.
