Take a trip down the yellow brick road in this keepsake edition of L. Frank Baum's classic novel.
Join Dorothy, Toto, the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion as they embark on an adventure in the magical land of Oz. As the unlikely friends work together to defeat the Wicked Witch of the West, Dorothy can't help but wonder if she will ever make it home to Kansas. A classic story that has been enjoyed by readers of all ages since 1900, The Wizard of Oz is considered the first true American fairy tale. Full-page color drawings by illustrator Cherie Zamazing add an imaginative touch the story, making this volume a treasured keepsake.
Ninth in Ingpen's series of illustrated classics, this atmospheric outing blends elements of American realism with elegant whimsy. With surprising emotion, Ingpen conveys the Tin Woodman's grim transformation, one limb at a time, from a human into a metal automaton; his scrawny Wicked Witch of the West, with her spidery black hair, overcoat, and striped stockings, would be equally at home roaming New York City's West Village as she would the yellow brick road. Readers yet to discover the story of Oz will find a wholly original vision in this edition. Ages 10 up.
