Welcome to a magical world of marvellous beauty, where Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion confront challenges and overcome their own character flaws as they make their way down the Yellow Brick Road to the Enchanted City. Watch out for flying monkeys and the Wicked Witch, and discover the secret of Oz, the Great and Terrible. At a time when all the best fairy tales were European, L. Frank Baum wrote this classic American example, set in the cyclone belt of Kansas. It was to become more famous than he could ever have imagined after Judy Garland played Dorothy in the 1939 film version.
