From the Back Cover
Dorothy, her little dog Toto, the Tin Woodman, Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion will charm boys and girls of today as much as they delighted children nearly a century ago as they set out on an exciting quest for the elusive Wizard of Oz. Along the way, they'll encounter the Wicked Witch of the West, the fantastic Winged Monkeys, the Queen of the Field Mice, the kind-hearted Munchkins, and other fanciful creatures.
Reset in large, clear type and accompanied by 42 of W. W. Denslow's original illustrations, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is ready to whisk readers off once more on a marvelous flight of fancy.

And while it delivers on that, the quality of the printing, formatting, and layout is poor.
But the story itself was pretty funny and a bit morbid IMO. If you have watched the movie but not read the book, lemme tell you; they are similar but by no means are they the same. The tin man’s reason for being tin was…..bordering on the ridiculous. My daughter and I kept laughing at each time he lost a limb.
And the Lion didn’t really come off as cowardly so much as bratty. But I’m sure that’s just our modern interpretation. I did love the flying monkeys. They played a much bigger part in the book. Each chapter was like a mini adventure, always something new that happened and was resolved by the end of it. It kept us engaged in that aspect.
One thing I will spoil for you….her shoes are NOT red.
And did you know, there’s like 13 books in this series? I had no idea. Anyway, it was a fun read. I definitely recommend it, especially if you had kids.
I got this book free from Amazon.com, and it will always be one of the treasures residing in my Kindle for PC application. It may become the same for any reader who chooses it for themselves. The Kindle for PC application can be had for free from Amazon.com as well. Get it and start your own collection of classics such as 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz'.
