Frank Baum’s timeless classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was the first uniquely American fairy tale

Frank Baum’s timeless classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was the first uniquely American fairy tale.

L. Frank Baum's timeless classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was the first uniquely American fairy tale. A combination of enchanting fantasy and piercing social commentary, this remarkable story has entertained and beguiled readers of all ages since it was first published in 1900. Ray Bradbury writes in his Introduction, "Both ÝBaum and Shakespeare¨ lived inside their heads with a mind gone wild with wanting, wishing, hoping, shaping, dreaming," and it is this same hunger that makes all of us continue to seek out the story of Oz - and be nourished by it.

Read it to the kids, 1-2 chapters a night. We got through the book quickly, but the kids asked many questions. What a fantastic book, this specific edition didn't have any of the updates, which was exactly what i was after. I don't want a PC twist, or version that is "sensitive" to this generation. Leave the story alone in its original format, offensive or otherwise. It was a great book, a great read.

Books just do so much more for the imagination than the movie counterpart could ever do. Anyone who grew up watching the film, which is practically everyone, should certainly do yourself the favor of reading this book and learning for yourself why books are often made into big production movies. And here, again, find out for yourself why the book is always so much more enjoyable for those who love to read. Judy Garland and company did a fine job bring the main characters to life. But nothing tops the wild imagination stirred in the reader by turning the pages for himself. Don't pass up this classic. Don't tell yourself it's a children's story either. Be a child again. There's nothing to stop you. Not even flying monkeys.

Something is missing, and I can't exactly figure out what. Perhaps I need to revisit the Soviet rip-off/homage to the series, which I read as a kid, and which was a deeper, darker and more nuanced exploration of the same storyline, and absolutely independent sequels. I guess it's because of this unshakeable comparison that I found the storyline in the regular Oz a little flat: the girl is bored in a desolate landscape, and travels to a queer wonderland. But, and I can't stop thinking of L. Frank Baum's job as a store window designer: this is what this book reminds me of, a masterful stylization on the theme that begs for a deeper, more thorough exploration. Which, I suppose, is a source of genius of its own accord.
Also, I really hate the person who told me about the gold standard subtheme, because it was really annoying to think about it all the time and never see it pay off in a satisfying way.

I used to wait for this cartoon every week and had recorded all episodes over tape. Have been looking for this since my VCR broke down in 1998! This blue ray contains all the original 52 episodes in stereo. Also I don't see any interlace artifacts in the main content, it's only single visible in some of the intros and is hardly noticeable when viewed on the 120 Hz adaptive motion plus Samsung LCD.. Before this blue ray I've never been able to find this show except on jaroo.com which had long since closed down. Someone out there still cared to put this classic show in digital. My 5 and 7 year old also love this and can't get enough..

Beautiful (albeit very BIG) box set! I never realized there were 15 some-odd books in the entire Oz series, fun surprise that & I'm immensely looking forward to starting the series once my reading list clears up a little (I'm one of those crazies who often reads multiple books at once). I've heard some complaints about the box the books come in being very battered looking, however, I haven't had that problem. I'm sure as time goes on I'll have to tape it up to help it avoid wear & tear, but I have not grumbles about the packaging. I grew up reading part of the Oz series when I was much younger & have wanted to find a non-Omnibus set for a while (omnibus being the great big books that combine several books into one). The cover art is very cute for its young audience.

I purchased this book because it had all the original Denslow illustrations.

And while it delivers on that, the quality of the printing, formatting, and layout is poor.

My daughter and I read this together and really liked it. I found the sentences to be a bit run on so when I was reading it out loud to my daughter I kept having to pause in the middle to catch my breath! That was a bit annoying.

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 introduced my 2 year old granddaughter to the original "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" with Judy Garland via good 'ole youtube. She loves, loves, loves that. And, also "We're off the See the Wizard". So, she was familiar with most of the wonderful characters and story (with the exception of the Wicked Witch of the West and the flying monkeys). I was happy to find this amazing book. The most challenging thing is to keep all the intricate pop-ups safe from her curious little hands. One tip I would offer is to turn the pages carefully! The story is a little long for her to sit through right now, but my abbreviated version as we turn the pages keeps her interest. I'm in hopes that it will only get better as she ages. I would recommend this engaging book - especially the "magic" Emerald City glasses !
