    Eltanin Version has all the wonderful illustrations

    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.

    Don't buy from Bottom of the Hill Publishing

    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.

    spellbinding!

    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!
