Editorial Reviews

"The cyclone had set the house down gently, very gently—for a cyclone—in the midst of a country of marvelous beauty. There were lovely patches of green sward all about, with stately trees bearing rich and luscious fruits. Banks of gorgeous flowers were on every hand, and birds with rare and brilliant plumage sang and fluttered in the trees and bushes. A little way off was a small brook, rushing and sparkling along between green banks, and murmuring in a voice very grateful to a little girl who had lived so long on the dry, gray prairie." For all of us with a brain and a heart, The Wizard of Oz will spring alive anew with this full-color gift edition, fully and zestfully illustrated by Michael Sieben.
