Reviews

"I look forward to bringing this book into my classroom on Monday. I have a feeling that many of my Wizard of Oz fans will be clamoring to read it."--Katherine Sokolowski of Read, Write, Reflect
"THE WIZARD OF OZ: THE CLASSIC EDITION is a beautifully rendered book that is sure to quickly become a family favorite."--Alex Baugh of Randomly Reading
"Charles Santore turns L. Frank Baum's classic story, THE WIZARD OF OZ into an heirloom book. There are 100 pages in this abridgment of Dorothy's adventures, all fully illustrated, most full-page and many double-page spreads. Together they reinvigorate the tale in an oversized book which speaks volumes about the rich imaginations of Baum and Santore while making the book accessible to younger readers."--Susie Wilde of Igniting Writing
