i cant even begin to put my thoughts down about this book. i just cant
This book is sooooooooooooo good! The part where Timothy dies almost made me cry (except that I was at school so ya......)!!!!!! I highly recommend it even though it's a pretty old book.
There's nothing quite like this book. Published in 1961, it's sort of Alice in Wonderland mets Charlie & the Chocolate Factory. A boy named Milo journeys through the lands of Wisdom by the Sea of Knowledge. He travels through Dictionopolis where the denizens love words more than anything else, visits Digitopolis where numbers are of top importance, and sees that without Rhyme and Reason (twin princesses exiled to the Castle in the Air), knowledge becomes cumbersome and nonsensical. He decides to rescue Rhyme and Reason. First, he must travel through the Forest of Ignorance, where a demon forces him to work endlessly over trivial problems (so that he will never achieve his goal), another demon gives bad advice and refuses to accept responsibility, and yet another enchants him with sensory pleasures so that he again forgets his mission. Plays on words abound in this imaginative fable in which Milo learns to appreciate knowledge tempered with focus and wisdom. Really great message told in a very unique way. In many ways, I think that adults would appreciate this as much as children.
