Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
This edition includes 10 illustrations. The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum received the Hollywood treatment in 1939 and has been a mainstay in popular culture ever since. Yet the book from which the film was adapted, with its silver slippers instead of ruby and an even more determined Wicked Witch, should be treasured on its own merits – namely, fantastical storytelling and a richly imagined faraway world that captures the imaginations of young and old alike. Still there is no denying the delight of comparing a beautiful movie to its equally lovely source material, and Baum’s original story from 1900 makes for wonderful reading.
Amazon.com Review
In spite of the fact that L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900) is one of the most popular stories in America, relatively few people have actually read the book. It's well worth the effort! Young readers expecting rainbows, Munchkin songs, and wicked witches with burning brooms will instead find a complex country populated with mocking Hammerhead men, dainty people made out of china, and fierce monsters with heads of tigers and bodies of bears. Through the fantastic land of Oz ramble Dorothy and her trusty companions--Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Lion--each seeking his or her heart's desire. Although the premise of the book and the 1939 movie is the same, the book--as so often is the case--delivers a far more subtle and intricate plot. A child's imagination will run rampant in these pages as one extraordinary creature after another leads the motley crew into strange and magical adventures. (All ages) --Emilie Coulter
