One of the most well-known stories of all time, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is certainly a tale of a different color.
Kansas girl Dorothy is swept up in a tornado and taken to the land of Oz—a land of wonder, excitement, a land of color, but also a land of a despicable evil that wants revenge on Dorothy for where her house landed.
With new friends, Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion (along with her little firry friend Toto) Dorothy sets off down the Yellow Brick Road, and takes us along with her, in the hopes that the Great and Powerful Oz can send her back home. You know the story, now read it the way it is supposed to be read.

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.
