When a cyclone hits her
Kansas home, Dorothy and her dog Toto are whisked to the magical Land of Oz. To find her way home, she must follow the yellow brick road to the City of Emeralds, where the great Wizard lives. But first, Dorothy, Toto and their companions, the Tin Woodsman, the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion, have many adventures on their strange and sometimes frightening journey.

It's lovely to read all the little bits that were left out of the famous film. For all it’s a very short book, Dorothy's epic adventure as she journeys along the road of yellow brick with her new-found friends is as enchanting now as it was when first published over 100 years ago. It's a charming tale that will delight readers of all ages for at least 100 more!
