Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the true classics of American literature, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over four generations. Originally published in 1900, it was the first truly American fairy tale, as Baum crafted a wonderful fantasy out of such familiar items as a cornfield scarecrow, a mechanical woodman, and a humbug wizard who used old-fashioned hokum to express that universal theme, "There′s no place like home."

Follow the adventures of young Dorothy Gale and her dog, Toto, as their Kansas house is swept away by a cyclone and they find themselves in a strange land called Oz. Here she meets the Munchkins and joins the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion on an unforgettable journey to the Emerald City, where lives the all-powerful Wizard of Oz.

This lavishly produced facsimile of the rare first edition contains all 24 of W.W. Denslow′s original colour plates, the colourful pictorial binding, and the 130 two-colour illustrations that help make The Wonderful Wizard of Oz so special and enduring.

Ages 9+

I had not read this book but of course had seen the movie. I bought it for work as we did Twisted fairy Tales for our Halloween Event this year so I wanted to see what the story line was like. I loved it defiantly recommend it as something you must read at least once in your life.
