Three tales of wonder
Three quests for greatness
Three feats of imagination
Norton Juster, author of the beloved classic The Phantom Tollbooth, shares spellbinding stories that entertain and delight. The first is of Alberic and his endless search for wisdom—will his journey satisfy him in the end? The second reveals a boy with no illusions and a princess with no kingdom. The third is the tale of the richest monarch in the world—and the poorest. What they discover is as amusing as it is unexpected.
With beautiful illustrations by Domenico Gnoli, Alberic the Wise and Other Journeys is a book as rich in meaning as it is fun to read.
Very nice read.
My 8-year-old son is a big fan of The Phantom Tollbooth. Liking that we decided to give this one a try and I enjoyed it much. In his opinion however, he preferred the first story to the second.
It was already great by the first line. You should read it!
