The Wonderful Wizard of Oz remains one of the world's most beloved and widely read books. Throughout a century of remarkable change, the popularity of L. Frank Baum's classic tale has endured and grown, embraced by generation after generation of children and the young at heart. To honor the centennial of its publication in 1900, the University Press of Kansas is pleased to present this special anniversary edition that combines Baum's original text with the contributions of two renowned artists: book illustrator Michael McCurdy and writer Ray Bradbury. Distinguished by McCurdy's beguiling illustrations and Bradbury's provocative meditation on the Land of Oz, our book also embraces and even celebrates the oft-kidded connection between Baum's wondrous story and the state of Kansas. With good humor and appreciation, then, we are very proud to welcome both Dorothy and Toto back home.

From the Back Cover:

"Michael McCurdy is a marvelous artist whose wondrous images offer new shadings for this re-paving of a road well-taken and a harvest of characters well-met."--Ray Bradbury

About the Author:

L. Frank Baum (1856-1919) produced a rich array of fairy tales, fantasy, and whimsy, including fourteen full-length Oz books. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz however, remains the most popular and enduring of all. One of the best-known and most-read books in the world, it is still considered ""the quintessential American fairy tale."" Michael McCurdy's richly evocative illustrations grace more than 160 books for children and adults alike, including American Tall Tales, The Man Who Planted Trees, Tarzan, The Sailor's Alphabet, and Trapped by the Ice: Shackleton's Amazing Antarctic Adventure. Ray Bradbury, one of America's most popular and widely respected writers, is the author of classics such as The Martian Chronicles, Fahrenheit 451, and The Illustrated Man.
