Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This special 100th-anniversary edition of L. Frank Baum's classic features eye-catching embossed gold foil on a centennial medallion as well as on the title. Santore's Wizard of Oz is widely acknowledged as the quintessential illustrated version of the tale for the picture book audience. His lush, full-color illustrations grace every page of the faithfully condensed text--no language other than Baum's has been used. This special edition is the perfect one to share with the youngest children.

Michael Jung, August 4, 2012 (view all comments by Michael Jung)
Spectacular - while L. Frank Baum, WW Denslow, and John R. Neill set the standard by which Oz books and illustrations are judged, the editor of this book did an excellent job of abridging Baum's original story to fit neatly in a picture book format, while artist Charles Santore's full color illustrations are nothing short of spectacular! Santore's Oz combines the whimsical fun of both Denslow and Neill, along with the color and spectacle of the Judy Garland's MGM movie. Once again, Dorothy is the little girl of the books (wearing the original silver shoes instead of the ruby slippers) while the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion are depicted in a style the merges elements of both Denslow and Neill's versions. A wonderful book that truly celebrates Oz's 100th anniversary.
