Book Description

30 April 2003
Originally published in 1900, the story of Dorothy's trip to Oz was the first truly American fairy tale. Here's a dazzling new way to enjoy L. Frank Baum's classic story about the little girl from rural Kansas who flew away on a tornado. Lavish full-color illustrations by Greg Hildebrandt, one of our finest fantasy artists, bring to life the world of the Tin Woodman, Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, and Wizard.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT so Wonderful Wizar of OZ 19 Aug 2010
By BeachBumMA - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book was a rip off...straight and clear. It's just minor text and is NOT The Wizard of Oz. Don't waste your money like I did. Get a different version.
The picture on the cover of the book is not even close to what is on the book that just got delivered!! Don't be fooled. "Run Away.."

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read aloud book! 28 April 2004
By M. A. Casey - Published on
We own the movie starring Judy Garland... my 8 and 5 year old both enjoy that movie and are meserized by the whole tornado event and what happens thereafter. So, when I stumbled upon the hardcover edition at the library book sale, I bought it, and they couldn't wait to read it! The story kept them riveted! The funnest part was seeing what was different in the novel than was depicted on screen in the Hollywood version. I also bought some of the sequels, and the kids are begging to continue! L. Frank Baum sure knew his audience!
1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T BE FOOLED! 2 Feb 2013

I was fooled. Nowhere in the description of this product does it let you know that the story has been heavily edited from the original. I thought I was buying the unabridged story with the wonderful artwork! I bought this as a Christmas present over a year ago. Imagine my surprise when I was informed that my present was a heavily edited version of the story.
5.0 out of 5 stars Spin off from original, perfect. 14 Jun 2011

There are so many versions out there on the wonderful wizard of oz, or wizard of oz. This one wasn't a shot in the dark. I wanted the illustrations of the original book, and this books has that. I wanted the original story not the short story version and I have that too. The book is in paperback, and the print is large. It's not the first edition, but it's a good buy for those who want the original story and not the first edition book. I have read a few chapters and it's great. I am hooked. I have never read the book. Seen the movie. I am glad I have the book. I can't wait to read it to my nieces' and nephews. Five star excitement here!

There are so many versions of Oz. This one is a childrens book only a few pages, and contains mostly illustrations. And the pictures are beauitful. My niece really loves this book she is six years old. It's a good read for a kid. I like it because I heard this one is the best one to get and it's beauitfully done. I love it.
