Review:

One hundred years ago, a little girl named Dorothy and her Kansas house were picked up by a tornado and whisked away to a land somewhere over the rainbow. This land was called Oz, and it has been the inspirational starting point for generations of children, writers, artists, and dreamers ever since. In this celebration of L. Frank Baum's extensive Oz series, thirty beloved picture book authors and illustrators pay homage to the wondrous Emerald City and its marvelous inhabitants. Brief personal essays are accompanied by remarkable illustrations by the likes of Peter Sís, Tomie dePaola, William Joyce, Kay Chorao, Jules Feiffer, Trina Schart Hyman, and Maurice Sendak. Robin McKinley was thrilled to find stories that featured "Girls Who Did Things." Ann M. Martin loved Frank Baum's poetic dedications in his books. Due to the fall of the Iron Curtain, Oz disappeared from young Peter Sís's life in Moravia for many years--eventually he discovered the communists had deemed it "ideologically incorrect." Madeleine L'Engle, Paul O. Zelinsky, Lloyd Alexander, Natalie Babbitt, and others describe their early encounters and later connections to Baum's imaginary world of tin men, flying monkeys, witches, and hen heroines. This collection of essays and illustrations is truly a labor of love--a perfect gift for any fan of Oz. (Ages 10 and older) --Emilie Coulter
