I realize that The Phantom Tollbooth isn’t a Baby-sitters Club book. However, as it is mentioned, possibly more than once, and I just found a copy at Goodwill, I feel that is is my duty to talk about it. It’s written by Norton Juster, who I don’t believe has written anything else. Wikipedia tells me that I am wrong. It also tells me that he was born in 1929 and is also an architect. Cool! This is seriously one of my all time favorite kids books; another one was never mentioned in the BSC so I can not blog about it. (If you are interested, it’s The Farthest Away Mountain by Lynne Reid Banks).
