The Wizard of Oz was full of miracles, doubt, suspicion, and love. The four main characters Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and the Tin Man are off to find the wizard to grant their greatest desires. Dorothy wants to return home, the Scarecrow wishes for a brain, the Cowardly Lion wants to obtain courage, and the Tin Man wants to know what it's like to have a heart. The book starts off with Dorothy, a young farm girl from Kansas, and her dog Toto. These two get swept away in a tornado, taking them to the wondrous land of Oz. There the meet the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and the Tin Man. First, Dorothy was blessed with a pair of ruby slippers. Dorothy learns from Glinda, The Good Witch of the North, that the slippers contain powerful magic and the Wicked Witch of the West will stop at nothing to obtain it. Dorothy and her new friends must kill the Wicked Witch and bring her broomstick to the Wizard of Oz before he can grant their wishes. Will Dorothy be able to complete this mission and return home to her beloved farm?

My very favorite children's book of all time, a perennial classic that I still read to this day. It is a story that never grows old and fits the true definition of a classic - it stands the test of time. Out of all of the Oz books, the first is still my favorite, but all are a must read.

THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ by L. Frank Baum
I read The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and I noticed many interesting elements in this classic. A book becomes a classic by "standing the tests of time." Not many books are a classic. This was published in 1900 but it still reads well although it is more than a hundred years old. Baum wanted this to be an American fairy tale.

What is interesting about the book is that the main character: Dorothy and her new friends don't want to kill a bad thing and become heroes and heroines. (Even though they eventually triumph over the bad thing.) They just want something to make their life better. This book is a metaphor for a journey through life. It means everybody is seeking something in life.

I enjoyed the book and was hooked right away from the cyclone in chapter one. I would recommend this to all fantasy lovers.

I loved this book which I just read for the first time. The differences between the book and movie made for fun reading. The characters are a bit different but the wonderful ending is the same of wanting what we already have.

A delightful series that is much different from the movie. Great to read to children. Many lessons can be derived from these stories.

Strange and wonderful, with many more interesting characters and adventures than you see in the movie. This was one of my favorite series in elementary school... I must have read nearly all of the original books, borrowing them by the armful from my public library. What a treat to go back and revist this one as an adult!

Not as enjoyable a read as it was the first time I read it when I was much younger. Still, a very enjoyable book, and definitely something that all kids should be exposed to.

This is the wonderful adventures of Dorothy and Toto when they find themselves in Oz. They meet the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Lion while finding their way to the Wizard to get their hearts' desires. In the book, they see more of Oz than in the movie and the different districts are each unique with its own color. In the end, each character finds they already had their desire the whole time.
