Twenty One - The Phantom Tollbooth - Norton Juster

Milo, a young boy, receives a tollbooth as a present one afternoon. Being intrigued by the tollbooth, Milo picks the town of Dictionopolis as his destination. Along his travels in this new "land" he meets Tock, the watchdog. Together they travel to find the princesses Rhyme & Reason and return them to the Kingdom of Wisdom.

Juster, Norton. The Phantom Tollbooth. Random House (1961). 256 pages. ISBN 0394815009.
First children's book I've read in a long time. Thanks to Patrick for the recommendation! Full of puns and humor this book will allow you to see familiar concepts differently.
