The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (version 9)

(5 stars; 3 reviews)

In the introduction of L. Frank Baum’s most enduring tale, the author writes that The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was “... a modernized fairy tale in which the wonderment and joy are retained and the heartaches and nightmares are left out” (Baum, 1900). More than a century later, Baum’s story (with the help of the enchanting 1939 Hollywood movie) still resonates in the hearts of “today’s children”—and in those of the older ones too!
