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
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.
