Based on the venerated children's book, "The Phantom Tollbooth Jr. tells the story of a ten-year-old named Milo, who is so bored with the world that nothing ever interests him, least of all the things or people that should. One day Milo discovers a large toy tollbooth sitting in his room. Upon driving through the Tollbooth's gates, Milo commences a fantastic adventure which playfully draws inspiration from grammatical and mathematical concepts. Armed with a dictionary and a pencil and accompanied by a faithful "watch" dog, Milo must battle the demons of ignorance, re-unite the kingdoms of Dictionopolis and Digitopolis and achieve the "impossible" mission of returning two princesses to the Kingdom of Wisdom." (MTI press release)
