Description

The Wizard of Oz made a writer of me.” Salman Rushdie

This complete and unabridged original tale, which provided us with the best-loved classic movie starring Judy Garland, stands on its own as a great modern-day fairy tale.

This is the story of a little girl, Dorothy, and her dog, Toto, who are whisked away on a cyclone from their drab Kansas home to a land of adventure and achievement, inhabited by such creatures as a Cowardly Lion, a Tin Woodman, an animate Scarecrow, witches, munchkins, and the Wizard himself.

Join them on their enchanting journey along the Yellow Brick Road in search of the wonderful Wizard in the enchanted Emerald City.

Praise

The Wizard of Oz made a writer of me.” Salman Rushdie

“If you ever talk to anyone who has written, you’ll always find a childhood in which, somewhere along the line, there’s a Wizard of Oz.” William Styron

“I have never known or heard of an American man or woman who has started to read The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and put it down without finishing it.” James Thurber

“Listening to The Wizard of Oz is an eye-opening experience. There’s more to this story’s plot, themes, and connections than is revealed in the movie classic. Anna Fields’ narration creates a new vision of a younger, sweeter Dorothy…a more adventurous journey to Oz; and a new ending.” AudioFile
