The book was about the Wizard of Oz. It is about things that the characters say. When you turn the pages, the pictures move to illustrate what the characters are saying.

I think other kids would enjoy it because some kids like short books with moving pictures. It is easy to read and the pictures are fun.

The Wizard of Oz picture is kind of scary and some people like scary things. I think it is silly how the witch is surprised because she starts melting. I think this book is special because it has cool pictures.

I think it is best for little kids but think that kids of all ages would enjoy it. Boys and girls would probably both enjoy it. I think it is a book that I could put away and then get out to read again. I think it would be best for someone around age 4. Kids who like short books, moving pictures, and movies would like it.

I read the reviews and purchased it anyways, so it's not like I wasn't warned! The pictures are dark. Very, very dark! I gave it 3 stars for 2 reasons: 1) it's The Wizard of Oz, and 2) the cover is beautiful. The book is also smaller than I thought (again, my fault for not paying closer attention to the dimensions). A nice item for us collectors for the uniqueness factor, but overall a bit of a disappointment.

Revised Sept 10: I got this book out today for my 5-year-old granddaughter to look at, and she absolutely LOVED it! She hugged it to her chest and said "thank you, Nana, this is the best book ever!" So I stand corrected...it's a great product and highly recommended for children.

This is a perfect addition to my 'grandma' library! The scanimation books hold a fascination for my youngest granddaughter, ToriJO! The Wizard of Oz scenes are well-chosen and fun to look at. I'm tickled!

The pictures are dark an animation isn't very good but that's not the worst part....

The Cowardly Lion is not in this book. It's skips the scene where Dorothy meets him. She meets the Scarecrow, then the tin man, but it completely leaves out where she meets the lion.

I hope they are aware of this problem and maybe I just got a defective book.

We have the scanimation books Gallop and Waddle. I thought, how dark could this book's scanimation be? Well, it's pretty dark. Like if Waddle is 50% on grayscale, this is about 92%, but that's because the pics are significantly more detailed in this book than in the other 2 books. Some pics are in color, but it's hard to tell. Saying that, of course, I still like the book. It's just flat out cool. I got it for my 5 year old and 3 year old and they love it. My 3 year old carries it around with her. Each page has a short quote from the movie to go with the picture and the kids have already memorized the lines from reading it so much that they can "read" the book themselves. (There's also more of an explanation in small print about the characters or scene depicted but we skip that since they know the movie.) They enjoy the movement and, maybe, can see it better than I can. There's a Dorothy-meets-scarecrow scene and a Dorothy-meets-Tinman scene but no Dorothy-meets-lion. Probably to hard to scanimate the lion. Who knows? It's got the witch melting and the Oz pic is fun. I suggest you turn the pages super slow and read in as bright a light as you can - like right under the lamp bright. I do recommend this book, tho. It's still pretty awesome, despite its shortcomings.

Love the scanimation books, and this one did not disappoint! I especially loved that the cover was covered in ruby red glitter. Beautiful presentation of a long loved classic.

I love this book and have gotten many as gifts and bought a couple too. I gave one to my friend for her birthday and I put it in some chocolate covered pretzels she was picking up for her class to celebrate her birthday. She did not look in the bag and I called her the next morning at work and mentioned it. The kids loved it!!! They were taking turns looking at it and it is still a big hit in her classroom.
