The Wizard of Oz was full of miracles, doubt, suspicion, and love. The four main characters Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and the Tin Man are off to find the wizard to grant their greatest desires. Dorothy wants to return home, the Scarecrow wishes for a brain, the Cowardly Lion wants to obtain courage, and the Tin Man wants to know what it's like to have a heart. The book starts off with Dorothy, a young farm girl from Kansas, and her dog Toto. These two get swept away in a tornado, taking them to the wondrous land of Oz. There the meet the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and the Tin Man. First, Dorothy was blessed with a pair of ruby slippers. Dorothy learns from Glinda, The Good Witch of the North, that the slippers contain powerful magic and the Wicked Witch of the West will stop at nothing to obtain it. Dorothy and her new friends must kill the Wicked Witch and bring her broomstick to the Wizard of Oz before he can grant their wishes. Will Dorothy be able to complete this mission and return home to her beloved farm?

A delightful series that is much different from the movie. Great to read to children. Many lessons can be derived from these stories.

This is a great book worth reading and rereading. Fills in the missed plot points from the movie. I am glad to have read this book.
