The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a true classic of American literature, and now it is strikingly repackaged for a modern teen audience! This must-have edition of the beloved, timeless classic also features previews of No Place Like Oz and Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige—edgy, reimagined sequels to L. Frank Baum's original story that are perfect for fans of Cinder by Marissa Meyer, Beastly by Alex Flinn, and Wicked by Gregory Maguire.
Dorothy Gale found life as dull as the gray prairies that surrounded her Kansas home—until a cyclone transported her to a strange fairy-tale land known as Oz. There, Dorothy discovers a wondrous place filled with Munchkins, flying monkeys, witches, and magic. The only way for her and her dog, Toto, to return home to dear Uncle Henry and Aunt Em is to travel along the road of yellow brick to the Emerald City, where the all-powerful Wizard of Oz may be able to help her. Along the way, Dorothy befriends the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion, who also need the Wizard's help. But while Dorothy desperately tries to find her way back home, the Wicked Witch of the West will do whatever it takes to stop her.
In this dazzling full-color gift edition, L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is brought to life with specially commissioned illustrations by contemporary artist and designer Michael Sieben.
Follow the yellow brick road with Dorothy and her friends as they travel to the Emerald City in search of the great Wizard of Oz in this new, complete and unabridged edition of the classic tale that winds its way from Kansas to faraway places and back. From the land of the Munchkins to the deadly poppy field, from encounters with ferocious Kalidahs, Winged Monkeys, and Fighting Trees to battles with the Wicked Witches of the East and West, the magic of Baum's story is beautifully reimagined through the extraordinary art of Michael Sieben.
