In the first of L. Frank Baum's time-honored Oz novels, country girl Dorothy Gale gets whisked away by a cyclone to the fantastical Land of Oz. Dropped into the midst of trouble when her farmhouse crushes a tyrannical sorceress, Dorothy incurs the wrath of the Wicked Witch of the West. Dorothy is desperate to return to her native Kansas, and, aided by the Good Witch of the North, she sets out for the Emerald City to get help from the legendary Wizard. On her way, she meets three unlikely allies who embody key human virtues—the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion.

About the author

An enterprising man who dabbled in acting and business, L. Frank Baum found his true calling with his magical Oz stories. Conceived as American counterparts to European fairy tales, Baum's turn-of-the-century adventures starring Dorothy Gale and her misfit companions presented moral lessons amidst encounters with evil witches and winged monkeys. Baum adapted his imaginative novels for the stage and screen, and they eventually found lasting popularity with the lavish 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz.
