There will be many celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the Wizard of Oz, but no collection would be complete without this brilliant pop-up version. Robert Sabuda's intricate and breathtaking interactive pop-ups are for children of all ages. Even the pages of text on the sides are full of surprises.
From the Publisher:
After a cyclone transports her to the land of Oz, Dorothy must seek out the great Wizard in order to return to Kansas, in a pop-up version of the classic tale.
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.

Even as a child, pop-up master Robert Sabuda was interested in this difficult art form: his creation of a pop-up WIZARD OF OZ for his mother was the precursor of a wildly successful career. Many years later, Sabuda revisited that project, and in November 2000 he published a bestselling pop-up version of WIZARD OF OZ. Sabuda earned a B.F.A. from the Pratt Institute in 1987, and is best known for his various Christmas pop-ups, as well the opulent, informative Encyclopedia Prehistorica series.
