Synopses & Reviews
L. Frank Baum' s timeless classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was the first uniquely American fairy tale. A combination of enchanting fantasy and piercing social commentary, this remarkable story has entertained and beguiled readers of all ages since it was first published in 1900. A century later, the enchanting adventures of Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion are well-known around the world. Here is L. Frank Baum's original and best-known story of Oz.
When a cyclone hits Kansas, Dorothy and her little dog, Toto, are whisked away to the magical land of Oz. All alone in this strange world, they wonder how they'll ever get home. With their new friends, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion, they brave many dangers and journey to the Emerald City in search of the Wonderful Wizard to ask him for his help.
