Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We're off to see the wizard! The magic of Scanimation meets the wonderful Wizard of Oz, bringing to life 10 memorable scenes from the movie that's enchanted generations of viewers.  It's the gift book of the fall, and includes:

• Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and Toto dancing down the Yellow Brick Road

• Dorothy's farmhouse flying upward in a twister

• Miss Gulch, on her bicycle in the tornado, transforming into a witch on a broomstick

• The Lollipop Kids strutting from side to side

• The Scarecrow doing a wacky dance

• The Tin Man swaying from side to side; Dorothy and the Scarecrow flanking him as if to catch him

• The Wicked Witch of the West waving on a sky full of flying monkeys

• The Wicked Witch of the West melting

• The Great and Powerful Oz--and the man behind the curtain frantically pulling levers

• A close-up of Dorothy clicking her ruby slippers

Like Star Wars before it, The Wizard of Oz is a marriage of phenomenal Scanimation and one of the most beloved movies of all time.  It also continues to be a vital icon: Warner's 2009 release of the 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition won DVD critics' and numerous other awards; Warner Brothers Kids just launched wizardofozkids.com; and in 2011, Andrew Lloyd Webber is staging The Wizard of Oz on Broadway.  Now it's found yet new life through Rufus Butler Seder With equal parts love and skill, he's created 10 compelling Scanimations, taking us over the rainbow.

A glittering, ruby-red cover is the final, delectable touch.

Review:

"With a glittery, ruby-red cover, this addition to the bestselling Scanimation series features 10 scenes from The Wizard of Oz, including Dorothy's farmhouse spinning inside the cyclone; Dorothy meeting Scarecrow and the Tin Man; and the Wicked Witch melting. Quotations correspond to each of the iconic moments and, as in the film itself, when Dorothy and Toto arrive in Oz, the Scanimation scenes turn from black-and-white to color. Less a retelling than a reminder of key quotes and scenes, it's nonetheless a graceful pairing of nostalgia and novelty. All ages. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

About the Author

Rufus Butler Seder is an optical genius whose first significant invention was Lifetiles, glass-walled murals that appear to come to life when the viewer walks by. He’s installed them at the Smithsonian, SeaWorld, Union Station, and other museums, aquariums, train stations, and ocean liners around the world. Next came Scanimation, and his company EyeThink, Inc., a business that produces a line of toys and gifts using technologies he’s invented. Mr. Seder lives in Boston, Massachusetts.
