When Milo recieves a mysterious and intriguing package through the post, all his previous feelings of boredom are banished. Having nothing better to do, he points his pedal car towards the starange land beyond the tollbooth and quicker than a flash he’s entered the Kingdom of Wisdom, where every thing is unexpected…
So in the story, Milo has to go on a journey to rescue the Princesses Rhyme and Reason from the Castle in the Air.
Milo starts in the Doldrums and nearly gets stuck there!! But Tock the watchdog pushes him on, through Dictionopolis, where they grow words, into the Forest of Sight and through the Valley of Sound, to Digitopolis where they mine for numbers!!
On the way Milo meets a great many strange people. My favourite of them is Chroma, who conducts the orcestra of colours! When Milo tries conducting the orcrestra himself, he makes a dreadful hash!! I even kind of liked the sprightly dodecahedron, the exact mathemagician or the over confident humbug!!
And not to forget the demons that Milo meets in Ignorance that are really a nightmare indeed!! I am still frieghtened of the one without the face, it yet gives me goosebums!! I even despiced the weak little one who sends people in the deep dark pit! Even the jelly giant was quite scary!!
I really loved this book alot..it took me to my own world of fantasy…the author has very elegantly and vividly described everything!!….i could clearly imagine all the characters in my mind!!
Mark my words, this marvellous book will surely improve your imagination power!! So do read it!
