Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Who has not heard of the Yellow Brick Road, Dorothy or the Scarecrow? L Frank Baum's immortal tale, on which the film was based, is 100 years old this year and adults and children worldwide show no signs of tiring it. This enchanting, annotated edition comes complete with an illustrated introduction telling the story of the book, its author and the film versions, including the 1939 classic starring Judy Garland. The text itself, a fascimilie of the 1900 edition accompanied by the original illustrations, contains fascinating and varied footnotes ranging from an eye-witness account of an actual cyclone to commentaries on Baum's attitude to violence and cruelty; fairy tale lore and references to contemporary science and politics. Beautifully produced, this is a must for anyone even faintly interested in one of the greatest stories of all time. (Kirkus UK)
