Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Celebrate the 100th birthday of a beloved American classic.

From the moment it appeared in 1900, The Wizard of Oz sparked the imaginations of children and adults alike. The inhabitants of Oz have become an important part of American literary history.

When Dorothy and her little dog Toto are suddenly swept from the plains of Kansas to the land of Oz, they meet up with some of the most endearing characters ever created, as well as one of the worst villains in children's literature. Together, Dorothy and her friends the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion set off on a fantastic journey down the yellow brick road in search of the wonderful Wizard.

To celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the publication of this classic American tale, Michael Hague re-illustrated the jacket, which, along with the book's cover, has been newly designed. The cover is now a three-piece case with gold foil stamps of Oz and the artist's signature on the front. Spot illustrations have been added to the redesigned front and back matter and a photograph of L. Frank Baum is now included, making this a lavish edition just right for gift givers or collectors.

Synopsis:

Michael Hague's illustrations for such books as The Wind in the Willows, The Velveteen Rabbit, and A Child's Book of Virtues have earned him a dedicated following. Michael Hague lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
