In this classic tale, Dorothy and her dog Toto are swept up in a tornado and taken from their home. They awake to find themselves in the magical world called Oz, where monkeys have wings and unlikely creatures can talk. Dorothy is determined to get home, back to her aunt and uncle and their Kansas farm. But to do that, she must find the Wizard of Oz and ask him to take her back home. On her journey, she encounters the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodsman, and the Cowardly Lion, all in search of something that only the Wizard of Oz can give them. The four friends decide to embark on their journeys together, unaware that this journey will change their lives forever.
In this copy of The Wizard of Oz, a graphic novel AND the original story are provided. I really enjoyed reading this book. The artwork in the graphic novel is simple yet really beautiful to look at, and it added another element to the story. Oz is such a beautiful and magical world, and I think that the graphic novel did it justice. I would recommend reading this book at any age – especially for readers who are just beginning to read by themselves, since the majority of the graphic novel is illustrations!
