{Synopsis} – You just never know when a twister is going to whisk you off to a magical land of witches, munchkins, and great adventures with new friends. One minute Dorothy and her dog Toto were home in Kansas, and the next they were teaming up with the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man, and Scarecrow to save the magical land of Oz from the Wicked Witch. Best of all, they realized how brave, loving, and kind each of their friends are, and that no matter how wonderful an adventure may be, there just isn’t any place as wonderful as home.

{My thoughts} – I love classic stories being retold so that a younger audience has the opportunity to read the stories. Whenever I run across a classic story made for a younger audience I always try to pick it up, because I enjoy being able to share these classic stories with my younger girls.

We all know the classic tale of The Wizard of Oz. We also know that it is a fun story about a fun adventure. That it helps Dorothy to learn really who she is as a person as she helps the scarecrow, the lion and the tin man. Together along with her sweet dog Toto they go about an adventure that leads them to meet The Wizard of Oz. If you haven’t read any version of this story you really should, it’s a neat story.

I highly recommend this book for any child that loves to use their imagination and to go on adventures. If you are just starting out reading books that engage the imagination this is a great book to start off with! I promise it’s incredible from the illustrations to the simple story within the pages. Any child is almost certainly going to fall in love with this classic story as I have over and over again.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
