After being transported by a cyclone to the land of Oz, Dorothy and her dog are befriended by a scarecrow, a tin man, and a cowardly lion, who accompany her to the Emerald City to look for a wizard who can help Dorothy return home to Kansas.
When a cyclone whisked Dorothy far from the gray prairies of Kansas to the colorful Land of Oz, it not only set a courageous and determined little girl on a series of unforgettable adventures—it blew fresh air into children’s literature. The Wizard of Oz is what the author called “a modern fairy tale, in which the wonderment and joy are retained and the heartache and nightmares left out.” It’s now more than a hundred years since Dorothy and her endearing companions—her mischievous dog Toto, the brainless but practical–minded Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and the kindly Tin Woodsman who longs for a heart—first marched along the yellow brick road into storybook history. In this edition, Michael Foreman’s bright, whimsical watercolors of Dorothy and her friends capture the enchanting essence of L. Frank Baum’s “wondertale.”
