Condensed from the original edition of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
Illustrated by Charles Santore
After a mighty cyclone carries Dorothy far away from her aunt and uncle in Kansas, she lands in a very beautiful but most unusual land. Her journey home begins on a sunlit yellow brick road that leads Dorothy to incredible places, including lush, dark forest, the sparkling bejeweled Emerald City, and the spectacularly ruby-red throne room of Glinda the Good Witch. Join Dorothy and her dog Toto on their adventures with a trio of unforgettable companions: a Scarecrow who has no brains, a Tin Man without a heart, and a cowardly Lion.
This beautifully illustrated version of the Wizard of Oz, retold from the original edition, will delight young readers discovering L. Frank Buam's magical and timeless story for the first time.
