Dorothy lived in the midst of the great Kansas prairies, with Uncle Henry, who was a farmer, and Aunt Em, who was the farmer's wife. (from the first line)
"The forest is perfectly delightful," declared the Lion, looking around him with joy; "never have I seen a more beautiful place."
"It seems gloomy," said the scarecrow.
"Not a bit of it," answered the Lion. "I should like to live here all my life. See how soft the dried leaves are under your feet and how rich and green the moss is that clings to these old trees. Surely no wild beast could wish a pleasanter home."
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a children''s novel written by L. Frank Baum and illustrated by W.W. Denslow. It was originally published in 1900 and has since been reprinted countless times, sometimes under the name The Wizard of Oz.
Annotation:
Originally published in 1900 as THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ, and later under the title THE WIZARD OF OZ, L. Frank Baum's imaginative American fairy tale/fantasy has been a perennial favorite for over a century. Though there is academic debate about 1890s political references in the text, the adventures of Dorothy Gale and the creatures she meets are infinitely more entrancing to readers. This first volume in the 14-book Wizard of Oz series opens with a transformative tornado that hits Dorothy's small Kansas town and transports the girl and her pup, Toto, to the magical Land of Oz. Seeking a way back home, Dorothy sets out in search of the Wizard of Oz, who she hopes will be able to help. As she travels, Dorothy is joined by an intellect-hungry Scarecrow, a forlorn Tin Woodman, and a deeply funny Cowardly Lion. But one of the most famous children's literary villains of all time, the Wicked Witch of the West, threatens to keep the foursome from their goal. The traditional edition is accompanied by W.W. Denslow's incredible illustrations, but many artists have re-illustrated this American masterpiece.
Author Bio
L. Frank Baum
Lyman Frank Baum's first ambition was to be a newspaper reporter. He wrote for adults and children under several pen names, but he is best known for the 14 books that compose his Oz series--the best of which are often considered to be THE WIZARD OF OZ, THE MARVELOUS LAND OF OZ, OZMA OF OZ and GLINDA OF OZ. Baum wrote a musical version of THE WIZARD OF OZ in 1902. His original book was turned into a movie in 1939. A second musical version was created in the 1970s.
