The Phantom Tollbooth Turns 50 – A Documentary

Just ran into The Phantom Tollbooth Turns 50 – A Documentary, which is a project already more than fully funded, but has another 50 hours left if you want to get involved.

“The Phantom Tollbooth turns 50 this year, and we’ve joined Norton Juster and Jules Feiffer, Milo and Tock, and a host of authors, critics, teachers and kids – to celebrate the classic 1961 children’s book, by making the definitive documentary film about this beloved work of the American imagination. Check out www.thephantomtollboothturns50.com for more info.

With conversations – and banter – from Norton and Jules, this documentary explores the educational, political and linguistic back-story and lasting impact of ‘one of the great works of fantasy in American Literature’ (Leonard S Marcus, author of The Annotated Phantom Tollbooth).”
