RIP Norton Juster, “Phantom Tollbooth” author

I read that book countless times as a kid, and I have no doubt it influenced my sense of humor and my love of whimsy. RIP to a delightful rambler through the fields of language and mathematics.

Thank you, Mr. Juster! You made the world a better place.

I went out and bought The Phantom Tollbooth as an adult, just to re-read it.
Wonderful writing.

I love that book to this day. I need to reread it now in celebration of his life.
