Norton Juster

Despite being the author of the totally awesome The Phantom Tollbooth, the geek classic The Dot and the Line, and a handful of other bizarre-but-amazing kids' books, Norton Juster's focus has remained on his architectural career. I sincerely hope that he has designed some mind-blowing buildings, because I'd hate to think that such a remarkable author would sideline his writing career for the sake of anything less.

Note: Jules Feiffer (the illustrator for The Phantom Tollbooth) and Juster were next-door neighbors. I bet the block parties were awesome.
