Special Edition Commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the Classic Movie
After a cyclone scoops them up with their Kansas farmhouse, Dorothy and her dog Toto find themselves transported to Oz, a magical land that is home to diminutive munchkins, witches wicked and good, flying monkeys, and all manner of marvelous creatures and beings. In the company of friends whom she makes during her stay--a Tin Woodman in search of a heart, a Scarecrow desperate for a brain, and a Cowardly Lion who craves courage--Dorothy seeks out the Wizard of Oz, the only person in the land with the power to return her home.
The Wizard of Oz has delighted generations of readers since L. Frank Baum first published it in 1900. Illustrated by W. W. Denslow, whose magnificent art distinguished the first edition of Baum's tale, this special 2013 edition features and elegant bonded-leather binding, a satin-ribbon bookmark, distinctive gilt edging, and pictorial endpapers. It's a book that will be cherished by readers of all ages.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
the wizard of oz is a great book. I have no trouble with the content. However, one of the main purposes of purchasing this edition o a book is for the cover and appearance. I am very annoyed that they decided to use the movie to illustrate the cover of the book. Some of the parts of the movie included on the cover are not even accurate in the story. One example is the red slippers. Don't illustrate a book with red slippers if you know they are described as silver.
This is a beautiful edition of a classic book
