I bought the series of Oz books, just out of interest having watched the Wizard of Oz film many years ago! these books are OK stories, albeit aimed at children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dorothy returns to Oz, 24 July 1999
By A Customer
Dorothy's return to the Land of Oz,along with her Uncle and Aunt-who finaly believe her stories-is a must for anyone who reads the Oz series.Dorothy had gone to Oz before(four times in all,if you know the other stories)but this is when she settles in Oz and becomes a princess.She could even have been a co-ruler,along with Ozma.Living in Oz was Dorothy's secret dream,and now that her Unlce Henry(who was about to retire from farming) and Aunt Em have come with her,Oz becomes Home for Dorothy.Home is truly where your loved ones are.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Must Have" for any fan of OZ books, 19 Oct 1995
By A Customer
This book is a wonderful reproduction of the very first run of the very first edition of this book.

When "The Emerald City of Oz" was first published, a special metalic green ink was used on the cover, and on the illustrations throughout. However, after the first printing run, it was determined that this ink was far too expensive to continue with, and so a regular green ink was used.

This special edition from "Books Of Wonder" very faithfully reproduces the book as it was originally printed, including the use of a metallic green ink. Other OZ books from books of wonder are similarly faithfull in being full reproductions of the first editions.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enchanting and imaginative book!, 27 Dec 1998
By A Customer
When I read this book in the fourth grade I was absolutely mesmerized by the story Baum had to offer to his readers. Dorothy's travels through Oz were the most interesting they ever have been. First, Baum brings the beloved Dorothy to live forever in Oz. Then he tells of her(and her friends) journeys in the lands of Utensia, Bunbury, and Bunnyburry (as well as some other places). Readers will be mesmerized when he talks of the beautifully dressed rabbits and hysterical when he discusses Toto's trouble with the delicious Buns of Bunbury. What about suspense and danger? Well, Baum throws in the Nome King for that, as well as some other fearful enemies who plan to capture Oz. This was my favorite Oz book and I absolutely recommend it to anyone who has the imagination to handle this wonderful experience.
