I am a Wizard of Oz fan and collector of everything Oz. This is THE most fabulous artistic depiction of the L. Frank Baum story I have ever seen. (Yes, I have two - one to keep, one to offer you)
Dorothy is a beautiful child and her young age and innocence is better portrayed in this book than in film. The fantasy characters each have an endearing magical charm. With just the right amount of text, the visual details of each illustrations hold a child's interest. The colors are vivid and each page turn brings a new excitement. The grand size of the book adds to the joy of discovery.
This is an awesome book for a child, an Oz enthusiast, a children's book collector - a terrific gift book for a baby shower, child, collector, or family gift.
