Review

First published in 1900, this children's classic is still popular. Dorothy and her dog Toto find themselves in the strange land of Oz after a cyclone hits her Aunt and Uncle's house in Kansas.

To return home, Dorothy must follow the yellow brick road to find the famous Wizard of Oz who lives in the beautiful Emerald City. On her strange and sometimes frightening journey, she meets the Scarecrow, who is desperate to acquire some brains, the Tin Woodman who wants a heart and the cowardly Lion who wants to gain courage. When they finally get to see Oz - in all his different guises - he sets them a terrible task which must be fulfilled before he will grant them their wishes.

This lovely new edition, with stunning illustrations by Robert Ingpen, will be a lovely keepsake for Oz lovers of all ages.
