Sinopsis:

When a cyclone whisked Dorothy far from the gray prairies of Kansas to the colorful Land of Oz, it not only set a courageous and determined little girl on a series of unforgettable adventures—it blew fresh air into children’s literature. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is what the author called "a modern fairy tale, in which the wonderment and joy are retained and the heartache and nightmares left out." It's now more than a hundred years since Dorothy and her endearing companions—her mischievous dog Toto, the brainless but practical-minded Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and the kindly Tin Woodsman who longs for a heart—first marched along the yellow brick road into storybook history. In this edition, Michael Foreman's bright, whimsical watercolors of Dorothy and her friends capture the enchanting essence of L. Frank Baum's "wondertale."

Review:

For many of us, the adventures of Dorothy in Oz will forever be associated not with Judy Garland singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" but with W. W. Denslow's exceedingly odd line drawings for the original editions of Baum's Oz series. The Viennese artist Lisbeth Zwerger, however, goes a long way toward providing a new and refreshed set of images for the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and the humbug wizard. These illustrations are often cockeyed, with occasional realistic details thrown in, like a crow with a corncob in its beak in the first portrait of the Scarecrow. The characters have a poignance and oddity that escaped the makers of the Oz movie.
