    Cute

    I loved the idea of hearing the story of Dorothy's adventures in Oz from Toto's point of view. I often wonder what my dog and cats are thinking. I do believe they are a lot smarter then we give them credit for!

    That being said, while the story itself was very cute, I found it to be a difficult read. I had to go back and re-read things to understand what the authors were trying to get across. Naturally Toto didn't always have the words for what he was trying to say and in their place he used the word 'something.' This was quite confusing to me until I got used to it.

    All of our old friends from Oz are there, the Man of Tin, scarecrow and lion. It was amusing to hear the descriptions of them from Toto. He thought the scarecrow needed brains and the lion porridge.

    I think kids would like this book especially younger ones if it's read to them. I could actually see it as an animated cartoon or movie. I think the things that were hard to read would come out much better in a cartoon. Overall it was a cute read that fans of The Wizard of Oz would enjoy.
