They love it and we all enjoy it as a bedtime story book.
Mijeong Flynn
The illustrations are phenomenal and as a fan of the original I loved having this version to introduce the story to my very young child.

I'm reading this again with my four year old for probably the fifth time.

The author has done a terrific job adapting the book to this format, which requires some abridging and editing. Almost all of the important details of the story are left intact and almost all of the text in the book is taken straight from the original (rather than re-written and overly edited). The illustrations are phenomenal and as a fan of the original I loved having this version to introduce the story to my very young child. A FAR superior re-telling of this story than the film version which barely resembles the original book.

I think this book is a must-have for any collector of children's story books. The first impression of some at my granddaughter's 5th birthday party was that it was much too wordy for her at this age. After her party, she asked me to read it to her, and I expected her to be quickly bored or easily drawn away. But the text draws the listener right in to the story and it differs from the movie version somewhat, but is still recognizable as the story unfolds. She listened for at least 15 minutes before deciding "we'll stop right here" until the next read. It is unique and makes a wonderful, treasured gift for a child or any Wizard of Oz fan. I'd consider it of "collectible" quality. It arrived sooner than expected, which was one of the best parts.

I love the story of the Wizard of Oz, and want to introduce my daughter to this. The illustrations in this book are just beautiful. Those and the story keep my 4 year old interested in the story the whole time. it's a long story so it takes several nights to read, but she's interested every single session.

The pages are delicate. Not for little hands that might pull too hard. I've gone through the book to make page turning easier on the next read. Story length is appropriate for pre-schoolers. I look forward to reading the book with our granddaughters.

I've looked for the one that has lots of illustrations so my young daughters(3 yrs, 5 yrs) get more interested when I read the book to them. They love it and we all enjoy it as a bedtime story book.

Would definately recommend the book.
Purchased it for my 5 year old granddaughter. She was in her first ballet performance of the Wizard of OZ and loved the book.
