Wonderful Wizard of Oz Interactive, The [Illustrated with Interactive Elements]

Author: L. Frank Baum Format: Hardback Release Date: 16/09/2021

A deluxe gift edition of L. Frank Baum's cherished children's classic, vividly reimagined with beautiful four-color artwork and nine interactive features created by MinaLima, the award-winning design studio behind the graphics for the Harry Potter film franchise. Hailed as America's greatest and best-loved homegrown fairytale by the Library of Congress, L. Frank Baum's classic story has been enjoyed by generations of young readers since its publication in 1900. One of the most-read children's books, it is a staple of American literature and the inspiration for the beloved 1939 Academy Award-winning movie (widely acclaimed as one of the greatest films of all time), as well as stage plays and musicals. When a tornado strikes the Kansas prairie, young orphan Dorothy Gale and her little dog Toto are blown away to Oz, a magical place filled with witches, munchkins, winged monkeys, and other unusual inhabitants. Lost and afraid, all Dorothy wants is to return to her Uncle Henry and Auntie Em. But to do so, the Good Witch of the North tells her, she must follow the Yellow Brick Road that leads to the Emerald City. There, she will find the fearsome Wizard of Oz who can help her find her way home. Along the way, Dorothy encounters three unforgettable characters-the Scarecrow, the Tinman, and the Cowardly Lion-who join her in her quest. Their journey to the Emerald City, fraught with peril and adventure, teaches them the true meaning of friendship and reminds us all that there is no place like home. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Interactive reimagines the novel's iconic imagery and highlights phrases from the original book in a unique and delightful style that will enchant readers of all ages. Sure to become a collector's item, this deluxe illustrated edition contains specially commissioned artwork and nine exclusive interactive features, including: A cyclone map that opens up to reveal the Land of Oz A pop-up Yellow Brick Road Oz glasses that provide a different look at the world Fighting trees with branches that move Dorothy's silver shoes that can be clicked together This marvelous edition will enchant young and adult readers and is a thoughtful gift for any occasion.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz A Robert Ingpen Illustrated Classic

Author: L. Frank Baum Illustrator: Robert Ingpen Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/09/2021

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.
