Eleven year old Hudson stopped believing in magic long ago. Until the day he is whisked away to the magical land of Logos - a land ruled by words, thoughts, and memories. A fairy might ferry you across the river for the price of one memory, or it's possible freshly baked homonyms will be on sale two for the price of one, and look out for snarky unicorns, as they are sure to judge the pure of heart. Upon arrival, Hudson is quickly saddled with a troll curse, and only his friend Charlotte can help rid him of the curse. But lo and behold she has an agenda of her own find and rescue the missing Princess of Logos.
The Phantom Tollbooth gets a modern day spin in this magical middle grade fantasy filled with adventure and humour that will whisk readers away.
