I used to "buy" the free versions of all the classics, including the Wizard of Oz series. But the free versions don't have the illustrations. I didn't know what I was missing. But then I started looking at some of the Oz ebooks that do have the original illustrations. Some are terrible quality - only some of the images are included or they are really small or grainy. I'm so happy I stumbled upon Eltanin Publishing's series. They have done the first 4 books of the series so far. But something is wrong with the reviews - my reviews and others are showing up under other versions of the books. So make sure you find the Eltanin Publishing versions. They have ALL the images and they look great. I just search on "Eltanin Publishing" to find them.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a classic fairytale which helps you escape from the stress and trouble of reality. This book tells the story of Dorothy, who is carried away from her aunt and uncle in Kansas by a cyclone and thrown into the magical world of Oz, along with her dog Toto. The adventure and magic begin as soon as Dorothy arrives. For she is greeted by the munchkins and a good witch, only to find that she has killed a wicked witch and gains possession of her silver shoes, which the munchkins say have an unknown charm to them. Before sending them off Dorothy receives a kiss from the good witch and is then sent on a journey along the Yellow Brick Road to see the great wizard in the Emerald City. Fortunately, Dorothy and Toto are not alone on their journey. Along the way they gain companions who also wish to see the wizard. There is the scarecrow- he wants a brain, the tin woodsman- who wants a heart, and the cowardly lion- who wants some courage. Together they continue their adventures and face many strange things and impediments. Using their strengths they are able to pass most of the challenges both quickly and easily. Just when you think the story has come to its end, Baum ingeniously puts a spin on the story when they go into the Emerald City. The companions discover a terrible truth about the wizard which leads them into additional escapades and formidable tasks which set them back from reaching their goal. These struggles include wicked witches, flying monkeys, trees that attack when you go to near and many other bizarre creatures. Aside from the troubles that arise the companions meet many nice creatures and make many friends, such as the Winkies and the people of Emerald City. However, there is more to this story than just strange creatures and adventure. There are many hidden themes in the story including the importance of self- esteem and self- reliance. The themes are concealed behind the brain, heart and courage that the scarecrow, tin woodsman, and lion seek, but obviously already possess. Even Dorothy finds that she has to rely on herself to find her way home. Through this exciting adventure you may find yourself lost in the magical world of Oz. This enchanting story unmistakably has universal appeal which makes it a true classic. Baum did a wonderful job of creating such an imaginative book that leaves you wanting more.

People should know what they are getting into when buying this book. The story will vary from the movie. Nothing irks me more than when people complain about that...the book came first! It is a great, classic story and is wrapped beautifully in leather. Great addition!

This is one of many Leatherbound Classics that I have purchased and it like the others does not disappoint. Beautiful leather cover makes this classic tale even more appealing.

The story is a classic and touching especially the scene with the wizard about how we are all amazing as long as we believe in ourselves its a book you'll want your children to read and pass down to there children. Though the story is over 100 years old it hasn't aged at all. Great for rainy days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There's a reason why people consider this one of the few American legends/epics. I didn't read this until I was an adult, and it just takes me back to my childhood. No wonder this is considered a timeless classic.

Fun to listen to, if only to pick out where it differed from the movie. I liked that Dorothy in the book didn't sound nearly so whiny as Judy Garland did in the movie...
