    Norton Juster obituary

    “This kid had gone into a world where everything was correct but nothing was right.” - Norton Juster describing his classic, "The Phantom Tollbooth". I recommend it unreservedly to every intermediate-to-advanced learner.

    His obituary, possibly behind a paywall, is here
    I am not a teacher.

    Loved that book and its Feiffer illustrations! So long, Norton Juster!
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
