Just in time to celebrate the 70th anniversary of MGM's classic film adaptation, this magical version is redesigned and reproduced by an award-winning illustrator from the original art, offering a highly visual, dazzling interpretation, with carefully condensed text that uses virtually no words other than the author's own.
Swept away from their Kansas farm by a wild cyclone, Dorothy and her little dog, Toto, find themselves in a strange and magical place: the Land of Oz. A marvelous adventure begins as she makes new friends the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion. Together they set off down the Yellow Brick Road in search of the great and powerful Wizard of Oz. Can the Wizard send Dorothy and Toto safely home?
