Milo, the protagonist, goes through several adventures, and eventually rescues the princesses of the kingdom, Princess Rhyme and Princess Reason, from the Castle in the Air. The text teems with puns. There are several events that become the examples of the literal meanings of English language idioms. One such example is the protagonist's jump to the Island of Conclusions. The author once said that his father was very much fond of puns. He got that skill from his father. Likewise, The Marx Brother's movies also greatly influenced the author during his youth. It is noticeable that the novel has been translated into several languages.
