The tale of Dorothy, and her dog Toto, who are carried away by a tornado to the Land of Oz, is one of the best loved stories in children's literature. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was a bestseller on publication in 1900, and its popularity was further enhanced with the celebrated MGM movie in 1939 that made Judy Garland a star. On her journey to the Emerald City to seek out the mysterious Wizard and find a way back home, Dorothy encounters many endearing characters of whom the triumvirate of the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion prove lasting comrades. This new edition follows these wonderful characters along the yellow brick road and, as Robert Ingpen says, he 'had the privilege of drawing Baum's 'Oz' characters and their adventures to be as near to 'real' as I have always wanted them to be.' The journey from cyclone-stricken Kansas to Oz and back again is portrayed in fabulous colours and particularly emerald green. This is The Wizard of Oz brilliantly depicted by the Wizard of Aus.
