Frank Baum and illustrated by W. W. Densl The Wonderful Wizard of Oz - Children's Books Literature Classics, Complete Edition ADDITIONAL CONTENT : + Active Table of Contents + Illustration Color from Original Book + The Author Biography + Annotation - Background - Publication - Plot Summary - Adaptations OVERVIEW: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a children's novel written by L. Frank Baum and illustrated by W. W. Denslow. Originally published by the George M. Hill Company in Chicago on May 17, 1900, it has since been reprinted numerous times, most often under the name The Wizard of Oz, which is the name of both the 1902 stage play and the 1939 film version. The story chronicles the adventures of a young girl named Dorothy Gale in the Land of Oz, after being swept away from her Kansas farm home in a storm. SUMMARY: Dorothy is an orphan raised by her Uncle Henry and Aunt Em in the bleak landscape of a Kansas farm. She has a little black dog Toto, who is her sole source of happiness on the dry, gray prairies. One day the farmhouse, with Dorothy and Toto inside, is caught up in a tornado and deposited in a field in Munchkin Country, the eastern quadrant of the Land of Oz. The falling house kills the evil ruler of the Munchkins, the Wicked Witch of the East. 5 STARS REVIEWS: Rachel - Goodreads Unfortunately I couldn't find the edition I have. This is due in large part to the fact that many of my books were once my parents and grandparents (I have the entire Nancy Drew collection from the 50's). The Wizard of Oz series changed my life immensley. In second grade I was Dorothy for Halloween. However, everyone was confused by my silver shoes. Way to be, MGM! In sixth grade I dressed up as Ozma of Oz in a giant green ballgown and poppies in my hair. Everyone thought I was Frida Kahlo. Weak. I'm considering getting a sleeve with original W.W. Denslow illustrations. I currently have a tatto running from rib to hip of my skin ripped open revealing gears. It symbolizes a lot for me, but it also represents T.S. Eliot's The Hollow Men, which I always thought was referencing the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman. If I only had a heart... Wendi - Goodreads What a fantastic read! I read this book during my first week of Christmas vacation while I sick and puking from stomach flu. Dorothy is so smart. I love that L. Frank Baum didn't make her some doofy little girl (like Stephanie Meyers did with Bella in Twilight - Steph, read Wizard of Oz and smarten up your girls!). Such a good book. I love how strong and capable all the characters were and yet they let little things make them self-concious. But then when needed their powers came out. The Tin Woodman not stepping on a bug. The cowardly lion pulling the raft ashore. The Scarecrow time and time again came up with ingenious ways to get them out of whatever trouble the group was in. Just a fabulous book. I think all kids should have to read this book and then have to read it again as high school students and then again as college students and one last time as adults. We all have our power inside us, we just have to trust ourselves and tap into it. I read the book originally to just have something "light" while not feeling well. But I was so wrong, this book made me think so much. It also prepared me to reread "Wicked" by Gregory Maguire. Everything means so much more this time around as I read "Wicked". Dorothy - so smart and strong in Wizard of Oz, not some silly little girl singing along - can be seen, if from the Witch's point of view, as a threat. I just love both books. Mel Vincent - Goodreads It certainly is one of the greatest fairly tales ever written.
