Publisher Comments:

Websters paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-French thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz by L. Frank Baum was edited for three audiences.
