Follow the yellow brick road of timeless enchantment. Over a century old, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz remains a perennial favorite, having delighted generations of youngsters (and their parents) on the page, screen, and stage. Yet, none of the countless retellings equals L. Frank Baum's original with its flights of fancy, inventive characters, and home-spun charm. In magnificent watercolors, one of today's best-known artists for children captures Dorothy and her motley band on their quest to the Emerald City and the fantastical creatures they meet along the way, too--from friendly Munchkins to the dreaded Winged Monkeys, from the evil Wicked Witch of the West to the wonderful Wizard himself. Every moment of the journey is awe-inspiring.
