The answer to April's A-Z Blogging Challenge is...The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster and Jules Feiffer. Written in 1961. Look at all the different book covers. It was even turned into a movie in 1970. Copyright renewed in 1989. The section I quoted from was found on pages 150-155. Congratulations to all those who participated, stopped by, and made guesses. If you got it right, you get 10 extra gold stars and a handful of M&M's. Kudos to you all. Have a happy May!
