The classic fantasy set in the magical world of Oz with its wonderful cast headed up by Dorothy herself is given new life in this handsome edition packed full of Robert Ingpen’s wonderful illustrations. A beautiful gift book to treasure.

All the characters so loved by children and adults are brought to life through the stunning paintings of award winning illustrator Robert Ingpen.
