In this fairy tale so magical that it seems every child is born knowing it, a tornado transports Dorothy Gale and her dog, Toto, from the flat prairies of Kansas to the marvelous Land of Oz. A fantastic journey soon follows, as Dorothy travels a yellow brick road in search of a sorcerer with the power to send her home. Joining her are the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion, each of whom has a wish just as important as Dorothy’s. All of their dreams will come true if they can only make it to the Emerald City and the wonderful Wizard of Oz.
One of the most beloved children’s books of all time, L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has inspired countless adaptations, including the classic 1939 film starring Judy Garland.
This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
Follow the yellow brick road with Dorothy and her friends as they travel to the Emerald City in search of the great Wizard of Oz in this new, complete and unabridged edition of the classic tale that winds its way from Kansas to faraway places and back. From the land of the Munchkins to the deadly poppy field, from encounters with ferocious Kalidahs, Winged Monkeys, and Fighting Trees to battles with the Wicked Witches of the East and West, the magic of Baum's story is beautifully reimagined through the extraordinary art of Michael Sieben.
When a tornado crashes through Kansas City, Dorothy and her dog Toto are whisked far away, over the rainbow, to a strange land called Oz. How will they ever get home? And what is at the end of the yellow brick road? Plucky Dorothy and Toto embark on a magical adventure to search for the Wizard of Oz and along the way encounter new friends: the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion.
