"Please, miss," said the shaggy man, "can you tell me the road to Butterfield?"
Dorothy looked him over. Yes, he was shaggy, all right; but there was a twinkle in his eye that seemed pleasant.
"Oh, yes," she replied; "I can tell you. But it isn't this road at all."
"No?"

Overview

"Please, miss," said the shaggy man, "can you tell me the road to Butterfield?"
Dorothy looked him over. Yes, he was shaggy, all right; but there was a twinkle in his eye that seemed pleasant.
"Oh, yes," she replied; "I can tell you. But it isn't this road at all."
"No?"
"You cross the ten-acre lot, follow the lane to the highway, go north to the five branches, and take--let me see--"
"To be sure, miss; see as far as Butterfield, if you like," said the shaggy man.
"You take the branch next the willow stump, I b'lieve; or else the branch by the gopher holes; or else----"
"Won't any of 'em do, miss?"
"'Course not, Shaggy Man. You must take the right road to get to Butterfield."
"And is that the one by the gopher stump

I love the Oz books, but it can be tough wading through all the versions available at Barnes & Noble for the Nook. It's a mess. What's worse is that the reviews seem to be combined together in some way for many different versions - some with the illustrations and some without. In fact, even though I'm trying to review the Eltanin book, this review might show up under other totally different books. So let me give you a tip - get the Eltanin Publishing version. It has all the illustrations and it is formatted nicely.

All of L. Frank Baum's Oz books are fantastic. The trouble with this specific book is not the book itself but the publisher: Bottom of the Hill Publishing. It's more like bottom of the barrel. The cover is pixelated and there are hardly any illustrations, if any at all, in any of their Oz books. The pages appear to have been typed up and printed at anyone's home computer. Do yourself a favor, don't buy from Bottom of the Hill Publishing.

I just couldn't put it down, and it's even better if you happen to like The Wizard of Oz

I read (and recorded) this book for my little sister years ago, and from what she tells me twenty years later, she still treasures the wonderful story! Baum created a wonderful world for us all to enjoy, and I encourage all to explore!

This seems like a great book! Does anybody know how many pages it is?
