Product description

A powerful tornado rips through the Kansas prairie catching Dorothy inside her home. Trapped inside the vortex, the home floats for hours. When the house finally lands on the ground again, it kills a wicked witch. Dorothy finds herself in new surroundings and is welcomed by the local inhabitants, the Munchkins, who tell her she is in Oz, surrounded by a great desert that cannot be crossed. Dorothy's only hope of escape is to see the great Wizard of Oz. On her journey to meet the Wizard, she is joined by some unusual friends who also want favors from the Wizard. But the Wizard will not help Dorothy and her friends unless they do something for him...

Author information

L. Frank Baum (1856-1919), one of the preeminent figures in the history of American children's fiction, authored nearly sixty works for children by the end of his career. He is most famous for his creation of the magical land of Oz and the fourteen best-selling books about it, from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900) to Glinda of Oz (1920).

Review quote

"The text is brief and full of modern touches . . . Dialogue is snappy, with a liberal use of humor and wisecracks. The animationlike artwork is full of movement . . . There is a cinematic feel that will appeal to young readers . . .this updated classic should find a different, and more welcoming, reception from kids." --"School Library Journal"
