Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
"It is time for a major publication program and first-rate design treatment for America's greatest work of juvenile fantasy. Clearly, the movie based on the books is more popular now than ever, and the source of this popularity deserves the attention and care that befits its status. We hope the L. Frank Baum Authorized Editions will carry the same import to parents as the Fredrick Warne name does for the Beatrix Potter books. Most of all, we anticipate heartfelt interest in the new novels."
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.
