But finding rhyme and reason in a land of nonsense is easier said than done. Milo gets stuck in the Doldrums, jumps to the Isle of Conclusions, and meets outlandish characters like Chroma the Great and the Horrible Hopping Hindsight. Milo's quest through thickets of wordplay and mathematical mazes gives his lazy mind a jolt, and is just what he needs to appreciate the not-so-mundane world around him.
With undeniable originality and timeless appeal, this children's classic has been using its magical language to cast a spell over readers for more than 50 years.
