What a wonderful book!

I am fourteen. I grew up as a young boy watching and loving the movie. At age nine or ten, I came across the book in a small bookstore in a mall. My parents bought it for me and I read it in a few days. I absolutely loved it. After reading the book, the movie isn't that...
I am fourteen. I grew up as a young boy watching and loving the movie. At age nine or ten, I came across the book in a small bookstore in a mall. My parents bought it for me and I read it in a few days. I absolutely loved it. After reading the book, the movie isn't that great anymore; it's just another classic musical. The book is so amazingly descriptive and the movie left out or changed so much of the adventure, it's somewhat disapointing. I like all the characters much better in the book. I would tell you more detail of what lies between the wonderful covers of this wonderful book, but there are those who have yet to explore the world of Oz and I don't want to ruin it for them. This is one of my favorite books and I wish more people would pick it up and read it, instead of watching the half-(not appropriate word) job they did in the musical. Horray for L. Frank Baum!!!

Disappointed

I purchased this particular issue of this classic story because of the cover. I am a Mary Engelbreit fan and purchase all of her books. Imagine my disappointment to open this sealed book to discover no inside illustrations. I have several copies of "The Wizard of Oz"...

I have several copies of "The Wizard of Oz", I didn't need another, I just wanted to see Mary Engelbreit's interpretation of the characters.

    Make sure you look at the cover

    I guess I didn't take a look at the cover, but this is a stepping stone book. It's not the original.
