About this title

Synopsis:

First in the New Classics for the Twenty-First Century series--updated classics for a new generation of readers. Dorothy, the granddaughter of Dorothy Gale, clicks her ruby sneakers together and is swept back to Oz, where she befriends new characters. Illustrations.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4 Up-This particular Return to Oz is not a necessary purchase for any library. The author boasts a list of screen credits, so it is not a surprise that this offering reads like a screenplay instead of a children's book. The Dorothy of the original story, now referred to as Grandma D, is living the life of a lunatic in Kansas. She has been pining to return to Oz for 60 years, but she can't get the rubies to stick back on her shoes. Her granddaughter, also Dorothy, is sent to her for the summer while her parents try to save their credit rating and their marriage. It is page 135 before Dorothy's trials with the Wicked Witch of the West's daughter, Ima Witch, begin. There is no need to be familiar with L. Frank Baum's book since the two stories have nothing in common. Tedrow's plodding story subjects readers to too much interior dialogue, makes shameless references to the movie, and violates the spirit of the original.
