Synopsis
After a cyclone moves Dorothy Gale's house from Kansas to the magical land of Oz, she begins her quest to get back home, meeting the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion along the way. The secretive Wizard offers to help--if Dorothy and her friends can bring him the broomstick of the Wicked Witch of the West. But can the Wizard really do what he claims? or is he nothing more than a humbug? Since its publication in 1900, L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has become one of the world's best-loved fairytales. The first totally American fantasy for children, it is one of the most popular children's books of all time. Newly designed and typeset in a 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.
Amazon.com Review
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.
