Description - The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum

We all know the movie and storyline well. But have you ever read the original novel? Influenced by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, L. Frank Baum created this classic story and fantasy using the dream of young Dorothy on her journey home to demonstrate the theme of good vs. evil. Throughout her adventure, she encounters several newfound friends: a scarecrow, a tin woodman, and a cowardly lion. They traverse the land of Oz together by following the famous yellow brick road to the stunning Emerald City. Though they encounter surprises along the way, what they find in the Emerald City shocks them. This beautiful book comes with luxurious endpapers, a beautiful and stylish heat-burnished cover. The immediate success of The Wizard of Oz inspired L. Frank Baum to write thirteen more Oz books. The Wizard of Oz is one of the best-known and most widely translated stories in popular culture.
