The Wizard of Oz

Written by L. Frank Baum

Illustrated by Olivier Latyk

The Wizard of Oz Synopsis

A stylish new edition of the classic children's story is brought to live by incredible new illustrations which introduce you to familiar and lovable characters such as Lion and Tin Man as you join Dorothy and Toto on their journey to visit The Wizard of Oz. Dorothy lives on a farm in Kansas with her aunt and uncle and her little dog Toto. Suddenly, a violent storm transports Dorothy to the land of Oz. Her only means of getting home is to follow the famous yellow brick road to meet with the famous wizard. Along the way, she makes new friends and encounters both good fortune and danger. The original book was first published in 1900, and this new edition has a text specially adapted for younger readers which captures the excitement and drama in way that is accessible, easy to follow. The perfect introduction to the classic story for a new generation.

The Wizard of Oz Press Reviews

'This adaptation faithfully keeps the feel of the original for young readers while entrancing them with the beautiful black die-cut layers which reveal tantalising glimpses of the page below.' * Parents in Touch * `a real visual feast' * Book Bag *
