Experience the land of Oz in a way you never thought possible. This delightful unabridged production of the classic tale by L. Frank Baum relates the adventure of the Kansas farm girl, Dorothy, being whisked away by a cyclone to a magical country inhabited by small adults, animated china figurines, talking animals, and magical objects.....Much more than you were ever introduced to in the movie. You ll be enthralled as the narrator weaves the tale with vivid vocal characterizations, sound effects and musical background making this rendition of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz the most amazing and memorable you have ever heard!
For many of us, the adventures of Dorothy in Oz will forever be associated not with Judy Garland singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" but with W. W. Denslow's exceedingly odd line drawings for the original editions of Baum's Oz series. The Viennese artist Lisbeth Zwerger, however, goes a long way toward providing a new and refreshed set of images for the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and the humbug wizard. These illustrations are often cockeyed, with occasional realistic details thrown in, like a crow with a corncob in its beak in the first portrait of the Scarecrow. The characters have a poignance and oddity that escaped the makers of the Oz movie.
