Description

Dorothy lives on a farm in Kansas with her aunt and uncle and her little dog Toto. Suddenly, a violent storm transports Dorothy to the land of Oz. Her only means of getting home is to follow the famous yellow brick road to meet with the famous wizard. Along the way, she makes new friends and encounters both good fortune and danger. The original book was first published in 1900, and this edition has a text specially adapted for younger readers, losing none of the excitement and drama. Oliver Latyk's stylish illustrations in yellows, blues and greens evoke a stunning fantasy landscape and loveable new impressions of the famous characters, such as the Tin Man and the Lion. The die-cut illustrations add an extra dimension which makes this a highly collectible edition for lovers of beautiful children's books.
