The Phantom Tollbooth is a children's adventure novel and modern fairytale by Norton Juster. It was published in 1961 with illustrations by Jules Feiffer.

It tells the story of a bored young boy named Milo who unexpectedly receives a magic tollbooth one afternoon and, having nothing better to do, decides to drive through it in his toy car. The tollbooth transports him to a land called the Kingdom of Wisdom. There he acquires two faithful companions, has many adventures, and goes on a quest to rescue the princesses of the kingdom — Princess Rhyme and Princess Reason — from the castle of air.

The text is full of puns, and many events, such as Milo's jump to the Island of Conclusions, exemplify literal meanings of English language idioms.
