5.0 out of 5 stars Magic! Just Magic! Read it Again & Again ! March 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A Delightfully re-Illustrated Classic!

I found this to be a beautifully illustrated update to a classic. The colors and images are fresh and vibrant, and very invigorating to read for the child, as I read to my 3 year old niece, her eyes filled with wonderment at the lovely illustrations.

The story is also very engaging and easy to read, I felt the author did very well condensing-down the whole length of this masterpiece to just the right length, Definitely one for the roster!

The Cowardly Lion in this rendition was sooo cute! I wish I could just reach into the book and hold his tail! Aawh!!!
The famous winged monkeys expressions really made me laugh, but made my 3-year old niece very very mad!, she threw her arms up in disapproval! (Awh!!) you should have seen her when they arrived! lol ~Get it! you'll see what I mean lolz!

It was a joy to both read and look at, and I hope the author does many more!

A Happy Customer ~Layla♥

5.0 out of 5 stars too cute and the pics are excellent March 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sometimes I am really glad that I am a speed reader. It allows me to dive into really great books and this is a really great book with illustrations that are simply delightful. I grew up watching the Wizard of Oz maybe a billion times and each time I enjoyed it more and more. I think this book is one you will be using often to entertain your kids. Kudos to the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Re-telling of a Timeless Classic March 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Classics are a great way for kids to learn life-lessons without being 'taught'. As the mother of two young children aged 2.5 and 4.5, I like them to have access to such good books. They are, however far too young for the original versions and some good abridged versions out there. This I believe, is a great book to whet their appetite for the classics at an early age.

The book is nicely illustrated and delivers the essence of the story in language that is age appropriate. My kids enjoyed this book.

Recommended - buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tinman And The Lion... March 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a really cute version of The Wizard Of Oz. I am definitely a big fan of The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz so I checked out this story. It is a really great book for young children. Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tinman and Lion have a great adventure together as they journey towards the Emerald City to see the great and powerful Oz. This book is available at Amazon.com That's where I bought mine!

My two year old granddaughter just loves The Wizard of Oz and this book is perfect for her. It avoids most of the scary parts of the story. It is also written so the children can understand it.

Thought it was cute; however, will need to reintroduce it in a year or two to my 2-year old granddaughter. Too many words on a page and page too small on kindle. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars My daughter didn't like how it was so different.
It was different enough from the movie that my daughter didn't really like it. She didn't seem to show any interest in wanting to have it read to her again and wasn't overly exited... Read more
