About the book:

A cyclone hits the plains of Kansas, plucking up the house where orphan Dorothy and her little dog Toto live with Aunt Em and Uncle Henry. The house is whirled high into the air, and lands, with Dorothy and Toto, in the magical land of Oz. To return home, Dorothy must find the Great Wizard of Oz, destroy the Wicked Witch of the West, and travel even further, to the powerful Good Witch of the South. Fortunately, Dorothy finds new friends and loyal companions, a Scarecrow without a brain, a Tin Woodman without a heart and a Cowardly Lion, to accompany her on her quest to the Emerald City and beyond.

L. Frank Baum tried his hand at numerous ventures, from poultry farmer to theatre impresario, yet it was only when he began to write children’s stories that he found success. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was published in 1900, and has since become one of the most popular children’s books of all time, inspiring many sequels and the beloved MGM film of 1939.
