L. Frank Baum
The tale of Dorothy and her beloved dog Toto, who are carried away by a tornado to the Land of Oz, is one of the most enchanting stories in children’s literature. It was first published in 1900, and its popularity was further enhanced by the celebrated MGM movie.
On her journey to the Emerald city to seek out the mysterious Wizard and find her way back home, Dorothy encounters the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion who prove lasting comrades.
This new edition follows these wonderful characters along the yellow brick road and, as Robert Ingpen says, he ‘had the privilege of drawing Baum’s “Oz” characters and their adventures to be as near to “real” as I have always wanted them to be.’
