Product Description

Product Description

* Beautifully illustrated with atmospheric paintings by renowned artists, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has become a classic favorite for readers young and old. It was the first of Baum's hugely successful Land of Oz series and tells the story of Dorothy's incredible adventures in Oz after her Kansas home is blown away in a cyclone.

* Just as accessible and enjoyable for today's readers as it would have been when first published over a century ago, the book is one of the great works of American literature and continues to be widely read throughout the world.

* This meticulous digital edition from Heritage Illustrated Publishing is a faithful reproduction of the original text.

On opening this book you become entranced by the amazing intricacy of the pop-up illustrations. The original story is told using the original illustrations but is brought to life in an amazing way. Each page has a large pop-up with the story told in its own little book within each page which itself has small pop-ups in it.
This book is expensive but it is to treasure. My 4 year old daughter loves the story and sits for ages just gazing at the scenes of the Emerald City, the hot air balloon etc. Adults and older children would easily get as much enjoyment from this book - just as I have.

I bought this book as a Christmas present for my 5- and 3-year olds. I read the reviews and thought it sounded good. I was confident it would be a nice book for them to explore a story I read and loved as a child.
Nothing I read here prepared me for the beauty it; when the parcel arrived from Amazon, I sat in amazement with this work of art, and completely lost track of time. The imagination used, not just for the illustrations but also for the way the story is told in little booklets, makes each turn of the page a delight. I cannot believe how much I underestimated the beauty of this book: when I showed it to my friends, they thought, without exception, that it must have cost at least £40.
One word of caution: I bought this for a 5-year old, but she isn't able to contain her excitement sufficiently to open and close the pages without damaging the pop-ups. It will have to be put aside until she's a little older and more capable of restraint.
If you're wavering, thinking of buying this book- DON'T! Buy it now, and keep it for years of pleasure to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pop-tastic! 22 Oct 2001
Format:Hardcover
I bought a copy of this on my last trip to the US, and I'm thrilled that it's now available for we Britons to buy. It's probably the nicest pop-up book I've seen, and does some really incredible things with this classic story right from the first page - which features a twirling whirlwind that leaps out at you! Obviously, the story is condensed, but each page has mini-pages within it, each with their own pop-ups to fill in the elements not shown on the main page. All in all, this technically dazzling book is a really wonderful way of enjoying Oz for young and old!

5.0 out of 5 stars unbelievably wonderful! 10 Dec 2002
By tobe
Format:Hardcover
this really is an "event" of a pop-up book! If you want to make sure your children think books are just as amazing as TV, this is the book to do it!
Truly stunning pop ups, and a well condensed version of the classic story of the Wizard of Oz leads to a magical present for five year olds and up to around 12 year old.
Simply gorgeous!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted Customer 25 Jun 2006
Format:Hardcover
I ordered this book for my daughter's 9th birthday. She had requested a pop-up book and it was tricky to find something that was appropriate for her age group. However, this book more than fits the bill - the paper engineering, design and artwork are exquisite and the little books within the main book also have pop-ups too which is an additional surprise. Needless to say, my daughter adores the book and has spent many hours studying the pop-up models. I have been so impressed that I have now ordered the "Alice in Wonderland" version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wizard of Oz Pop Up Book 12 Oct 2007
By Zoe
Format:Hardcover
I had been recommended this book a long time ago and having looked in book shops found that the book looked amazing but the price at 19.99 was a bit steep. So spotting the great deal at half the retail price at 9.99 on amazon was a real lucky find. When i got my delivery which was incredibly fast and free, i had a sneak peek of the book which was for one of my daughters xmas presents and was astounded at the craftmanship and beauty of the book. This is a must have keepsake for any child who adores books, the detail is of a very high standard and well worth it. It is so pretty that i had to order the Alice in Wonderland version as well which is just as amazing. This is not your average pop up book it is for keeping out the way when not in use, as i could imagine it to be quite fragile. Overall an excellent book that you will read time and time again, and something very special to pass down from generation to generation.

4.0 out of 5 stars how does that all fit in there?????? 22 Mar 2007
Format:Hardcover
Thought the book looked a bit bulky at first but open it up and the most incredable tornado springs out of the first page, each page has a wonderful centre piece pop up. and every page of the book (which are smaller pages either side of the main popup) has some kind of smaller pop up. some of the things that emerge out of the book, such as the hot air balloon, are pretty impressive, and they all fold away very well. very good book.. got it as a present for my daughter but had to stop myself playing with it in case i wore it out.
