And with the Wicked Witch of the West on their trail Dorothy and Toto together with new friends the Tin Woodsman Scarecrow and cowardly Lion embark on a fantastic uest along the The Wonderful PDF Yellow Brick Road in search o My 8 year old decided she wanted to read this one and we just finished buddy reading two different copies The copy she s reading is a new Scholastic version which is just a simple paperback with an adorable cover I went ahead and picked up this 100th anniversary edition for our home library because it s illustrated large print and hardcover which I love I m sure most already know the story The beginning opens with a cyclone that carries Dorothy in her house along with her little dog Toto all the way to a foreign land Her house falls on a wicked witch killing her resulting in Dorothy becoming a hero On her journey to find the wizard she meets a scarecrow a tin woodman and a cowardly lionDorothy s love for her new found friends is heartwarming and there isn t anything she wouldn t do for them Together they embark on an adventure to find the Emerald City Each of the four travelers has a reuest for the wizard the scarecrow wants brains the tin woodman a heart and the lion needs courage Dorothy s only reuest is to be sent back home to Aunt Em in Kansas It s uite fascinating what can be accomplished if you only believe No matter how dreary and gray our homes are we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country be it ever so beautiful There is no place like home I can t remember the last time I read The Wonderful Wizard of Oz but it was probably sometime around 5th grade or so We had a tattered up copy in our school library I m not even sure if I finished it because this time around I was amazed with the differences in the book compared to the Hollywood movie Some events were left out in the film while others were added in which made it even exciting including the entire beginning of the movie Details were also different Not only that parts of the book were fairly dark for young readers He seized his axe which he had made very sharp and as the leader of the wolves came on the Tin Woodman swung his arm and chopped the wolf s head from its body so that it immediately died As soon as he could raise his axe another wolf came up and he also fell under the sharp edge of the Tim Woodman s weapon There were forty wolves and forty times a wolf was killed so that at last they all lay dead in a heap before the Woodman We enjoyed reading about the magical world L Frank Baum has created in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Just picture it with fighting trees flying monkeys munchkins and witches There was no telling what would happen next We connected with all the characters tooI was one of those children who waited for the movie to come on local television channels every single year I was entranced when Dorothy got sucked up into the tornado along with her house and Toto One of the most exciting parts for me was when the movie transitioned from black and white to color I was obsessed with the movie The book may not be as extravagant as the movie and there are many differences but the book is still magical with great characters There are many good lessons for children to learn as wellThis was a very creative children s fantasy in my opinion The illustrations throughout were a treat and make the story even interesting It s a book perfect for all ages I m not sure if we ll reread it anytime soon but my eight year old and ten year old kids enjoyed it as much as I did I ve read the second book and plan to finish the entire series eventually4You can see this review with illustrations
