Synopsis
In this classic and timeless story, which is one of the true classics of American literature, Dorothy and her adventures have stirred the imagination of young and old alike for generations. Considered as the first American fairy tale, L. Frank Baum crafted a wonderful and imaginative story out of familiar places and characters. Dorothy will go through the adventure of a lifetime. In the story, we follow the adventures of young Dorothy Gale and her dog, Toto, as their Kansas house is swept away by a cyclone. Dorothy and Toto emerge in a strange and magical land called Oz. And it is at this very moment when one of the greatest and most imaginative adventures of all time begins. Dorothy will meet good and evil Witches, the Munchkins, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, the Cowardly Lion, the mighty Wizard of Oz, and many other characters on her way through the famous yellow brick road leading to the Emerald City. Will Dorothy be able to get back home to Kansas? We shall see.

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.
