Publisher Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.


You’ve seen the iconic 1939 movie, but do you know about the talking field mice, the Winkies, and the Witch of the North that appear in the original book? L. Frank Baum’s beloved classic - the first title in the Oz series - is more complex and intricate than the movie, but just as colorful and fun. The story features a large cast of enchanting characters and a thrilling heroic quest.


Upon the book’s release in 1900, Baum wrote, “It aspires to be a modernized fairy tale, in which the wonderment and joy are retained and the heart-aches and nightmares are left out.” Mission accomplished. Readers of all ages immediately fell in love with the story, demanding sequels, and Baum obliged, penning more than a dozen installments before his death in 1919.

Outstanding

Love the movie but the book beats it hands down.

Sensational

I just got done reading this to my 6 year old son. He had seen the classic movie and was more scared of the sepia toned cyclone scene than of any thing else. In the book he was anxiously scared of the wicked witch of the west that to get past that part I substituted his favorite female cartoon character. So, the Minnie Mouse of the West was born. I never realized how many omissions from the movie were approved. The book has so much mor going for it then the movie it is a must read for any parents with children.
