Free ePUB The Wizard of Oz (Collector's Library)Author L Frank Baum –

This edition is a cute small edition with gilded edge and illustrations ,got the book in good condition. Ok, smaller than I thought but a well made book and was pre film it differs slightly This is the story of Dorothy and her little dog Toto, who are carried away from Kansas by a cyclone and transported to the wonderful world of Oz She meets three companions the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion and the three journey to the Emerald City of Oz to ask the Wizard of Oz to give them their hearts desires, which in Dorothy s case is to return home to Kansas On their way to Oz and while fulfilling the tasks that the surprising Wizard asks of them they encounter witches, winged monkeys, the Deadly Desert, fighting trees and magic shoes This edition is evocatively illustrated with the original drawings of W W Denslow which have been sensitively re coloured by Barbara Frith, one of Britain s leading colourists Its not as good as Jungle book of the same series, this one was a bit long winded and my grand daughter lost a bit of interest Great, condition perfect enjoyable excellent My son had been looking forward to this CD arriving for ages I put it on for bedtime and the first thing that was odd was the dog called BO BO and no it just wasn t the accent of the reader and then the good witch, the readers voice was so scarey that at first i thought it was meant to be the evil witch The voice was actually so inappropriate I had to turn it off my son was really quite frightened especially if this was meant to be the good witch I really am disappointed with this and although not a lot of money my son loves the film and thought this would be great to listen to at bedtime Wir sind groe Fans vom Wizard of Oz und waren etwas enttuscht, dass die CD doch vom Buch Film abweicht So heit Dorothy s Hund nicht Toto sondern Bobo, was Kinder einfach irritiert Auch klingt die gute Hexe eher wie die bse Hexe, die ja auch eine Rolle spielt, und die stndige HIntergrundmusik erinnert eher an einen Filmtrailer als eine erzhlte Geschichte Etwas seltsam aber natrlich bleibt die Geschichte vom Wizard of Oz ein Klassiker. Bought for a Christmas present so I m not sure if its any good but I m sure it is. Very good.
