Another boy-rescues-the-princesses story, but in this one the princesses are Rhyme and Reason. This book uses wordplay literally and you'd better hold on for the ride. Now, every time I think of the word din, I remember the terrible DYNNE.

An oldie but a goodie. Gets your imagination flowing in a way that Alice in Wonderland does - there's so many things you'd never think of.

When I was a kid, this was my all time, #1 favorite book. When I had kids, I HAD to get this book and read it to them. You know what? I STILL love this book -- and so did they. So if you are somewhere between 5 and 105, I would recommend this book. It’s fantastic!

This is one of my favorites! It's about a boy named Milo who was very bored one day and received a mysterious package which was a tollbooth and travels to the mystical and mythical lands beyond. Read this book!

An "Alice in Wonderland" type of story for people who love to play with language.

This book is absolutely my all time favorite. It’s about a boy who gets a time machine. He goes in and he lands in two different worlds: a world of numbers and a world of the alphabet. He meets talking letters and numbers that are always in a conflict of which is more important: numbers and mathematics or the alphabet and reading. So which is more important? He has to decide between them to complete his journey through the time machine. I recommend this book to anyone looking for an adventurous read!
