The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum

The Wizard of Oz was first published in 1900 and, since then, has been immortalised on stage and screen. It's enduring appeal is coupled with fresh, new illustrations in this stunning edition, which would make an excellent gift.

Join Dorothy and her little dog Toto on the yellow brick road, as they set off to explore the magical Land of Oz. Can they find the Wizard, defeat the Wicked Witch of the West, and return to Kansas?
