Alberic the Wise and Other Journeys

by Norton Juster

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. Alberic the Wise and Other Journeys is a book as rich in meaning as it is fun to read.

The Hello, Goodbye Window

by Norton Juster

From the book: The kitchen window at Nana and Poppy's house is, for one little girl, a magic gateway. Everything important happens near it, through it, or beyond it. Told in her voice, her story is both a voyage of discovery and a celebration of the commonplace wonders that define childhood. It is also a love song devoted to that special relationship between grandparents and grandchild. The illustrations in this book look like pictures colored by a child. Pictures are described. This book received the Newberry Award.
