No childhood is complete without a trip down the Yellow Brick Road, and this reprint of the original edition of L. Frank Baum's classic will transport young readers and listeners from the plains of Kansas to the shining towers of Oz. Baum characterized his ever-popular story as "a modernized fairy tale, in which the wonderment and joy are retained and the heartaches and nightmares are left out." His rich fantasies and child-friendly narrative combined with W. W. Denslow's artistry to make this the bestselling children's book of 1900.
More than a century later, children continue to take Dorothy and her friends into their hearts. This version of their adventures is enhanced with the original 143 illustrations and 23 color plates.
A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

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.

Book Description:

The Wizard of Oz is a beloved American classic.  This edition, with fine illustrations from internationally acclaimed artist Lizbeth Zwerger, has been reformatted as a readaloud edition.
