A cyclone hits the plains of Kansas, plucking up the house where orphan Dorothy and her little dog Toto live with Aunt Em and Uncle Henry. The house is whirled high into the air, and lands, with Dorothy and Toto, in the magical land of Oz. To return home, Dorothy must find the Great Wizard of Oz, destroy the Wicked Witch of the West, and travel even further, to the powerful Good Witch of the South. Fortunately, Dorothy finds new friends and loyal companions, a Scarecrow without a brain, a Tin Woodman without a heart and a Cowardly Lion, to accompany her on her quest to the Emerald City and beyond.
This Folio Society edition contains 25 enchanting images, including 7 double-page spreads and 10 full-page pictures. Award-winning artist Sara Ogilvie has captured all the book’s colour and charm, from the slinking, shame-faced Lion to the terrifying Kalidahs. Green-washed duotone images represent the Emerald City, and a double-page map shows the topography of Oz. In a fascinating new introduction, Harvard professor Maria Tatar explains why we, like Dorothy, are drawn to Oz time and again.
