Since it was first published in 1900, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has enchanted readers of all ages with its lovable characters, gentle humor, and quiet wisdom. This complete and unabridged edition of L. Frank Baum's beloved classic invites a new generation of readers to travel down that Yellow Brick Road with the delightful little girl from Kansas and her unusual friends. Dorothy, her little dog Toto, the Tin Woodman, Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion will charm boys and girls of today as much as they delighted children nearly a century ago as they set out on an exciting quest for the elusive Wizard of Oz. Along the way, they'll encounter the Wicked Witch of the West, the fantastic Winged Monkeys, the Queen of the Field Mice, the kind-hearted Munchkins, and other fanciful creatures. Reset in large, clear type and accompanied by 42 of W. W. Denslow's original illustrations, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is ready to whisk readers off once more on a marvelous flight of fancy. Reprint of the George M. Hill Company, 1900 edition.
