When Uncle Henry and Aunt Em's grey, grim Kansas farmhouse was picked up by the great summer cyclone, a wondrous adventure had begun. The whole house whirled around two or three times then rose slowly through the air with little Dorothy and dog Toto inside. After what seemed an age to Dorothy the house landed with a great crash and upon opening the door she and Toto were amazed to see a beautiful brilliant green land full of sunshine and flowers. It is not long before she and Toto meet the motley crew - Scarecrow, Lion and Tin Woodman - who are to become her travelling companions along the Yellow Brick Road which leads to the Emerald City and the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Dorothy and Toto have many adventures before the Good Witch grants them their wish - to return home to Kansas. But that is just the beginning; many more adventures lie ahead, with the weirdest folk to meet and the most fantastical places to explore - all in the Land of Oz. AUTHOR: L. Frank Baum (1856 - 1919) was an American writer and dramatist, who wrote on a part-time basis until he published 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' at the age of 44, at which time he retired to write on a full-time basis. In all he wrote a further thirteen 'Oz' books, and these works have been hugely popular ever since.
