Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hailed as the first original American fairy tale, The Wizard of Oz inspired countless sequels and imitations, as well as the classic American musical film and the Broadway musical The Wiz. In L. Frank Baum's imaginative story, Dorothy Gale takes a magical journey from the American heartland into the wonderful land of Oz to meet the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion.

Synopsis:

The truly American fairy tale contains the full and unabridged text of the original classic and includes a reader's guide for children and adults.

In 1900, he published his best known book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Eventually he wrote fifty-five novels, including thirteen Oz books, plus four lost novels, eighty-three short stories, more than two hundred poems, an unknown number of scripts, and many miscellaneous writings.

I don't even really need to say much about this book. Obviously, it's a classic and for good reason. One of the greatest stories ever told!
