L. Frank Baum’s tale of a little girl who discovers that there’s no place like home is one of the most beloved novels ever written. When a cyclone carries Dorothy and her little dog Toto into the magical land of Oz, she and her three new friends ?

This edition is evocatively illustrated with the original drawings of W W Denslow, and will coincide with the 75th anniversary of the popular film. The world's greatest works of literature are now available in these beautiful keepsake volumes.

In spite of the fact that L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900) is one of the most popular stories in America, relatively few people have actually read the book. It's well worth the effort! Young readers expecting rainbows, Munchkin songs, and wicked witches with burning brooms will instead find a complex country populated with mocking Hammerhead men, dainty people made out of china, and fierce monsters with heads of tigers and bodies of bears. Through the fantastic land of Oz ramble Dorothy and her trusty companions--Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Lion--each seeking his or her heart's desire. Although the premise of the book and the 1939 movie is the same, the book--as so often is the case--delivers a far more subtle and intricate plot. A child's imagination will run rampant in these pages as one extraordinary creature after another leads the motley crew into strange and magical adventures.
