A powerful tornado rips through the Kansas prairie catching Dorothy inside her home. Trapped inside the vortex, the home floats for hours. When the house finally lands on the ground again, it kills a wicked witch.

Dorothy finds herself in new surroundings and is welcomed by the local inhabitants, the Munchkins, who tell her she is in Oz, surrounded by a great desert that cannot be crossed.

Dorothy's only hope of escape is to see the great Wizard of Oz. On her journey to meet the Wizard, she is joined by some unusual friends who also want favors from the Wizard. But the Wizard will not help Dorothy and her friends unless they do something for him: they must kill the Wicked Witch of the West!

Read Campfire's adaptation to know more about Dorothy's adventures in this delightful tale that has fascinated children for years.

About the Author

L. Frank Baum was born May 15, 1856, the seventh of nine children. After the publication of THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ in 1900, he continued to publish one book in the OZ series every year, before his death in 1919.

"I "highly recommend" Campfire's comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."

L. Frank Baum

Lyman Frank Baum, born May 15 1856, was an American author of children's books, best known for writing The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He wrote thirteen novel sequels, nine other fantasy novels, and a host of other works (55 novels in total, plus four "lost" novels, 83 short stories, over 200 poems, an unknown number of scripts, and many miscellaneous writings), and made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and screen.

His works anticipated such century-later commonplaces as television, augmented reality, laptop computers (The Master Key), wireless telephones (Tik-Tok of Oz), women in high risk, action-heavy occupations (Mary Louise in the Country), and the ubiquity of advertising on clothing (Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work).

On May 5, 1919, Baum suffered from a stroke. He died quietly the next day, nine days short of his 63rd birthday.His final Oz book, Glinda of Oz, was published on July 10, 1920, a year after his death. The Oz series was continued long after his death by other authors, notably Ruth Plumly Thompson, who wrote an additional nineteen Oz books.
