Join Dorothy, her dog Toto, the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion in a marvelous flight of fancy as they set out on the Yellow Brick Road in search of the mysterious and powerful Wizard of Oz. Originally written in 1900, L. Frank Baum's classic fantasy—an entirely novel American fairytale—continues to delight readers of all ages with its talking animals, magical characters, and wild adventures, and still inspires new adaptations and original works, including Gregory Maguire's Wicked trilogy. This Egmont Heritage book is a really lovely little edition, ideal for travel, for reading aloud, and for reacquainting readers with a classic tale they may remember from their youth. The unillustrated text is presented in a cloth spine with gold stampings and an illustrated cover, as well as printed endpapers, a ribbon marker, and sewn binding.
