The Wizard of Oz
The Wizard of Oz: The First Five Novels | L. Frank Baum
228 posts | 211 read | 4 reading | 53 to read
Oz, the Great Wizard! The very name of L. Frank Baum's magical character conjures a world where diminutive munchkins live and work, wicked witches run riot, and the mighty Oz himself rules over an Emerald City reached by a yellow brick road. The Wizard of Oz: The First Five Novels is your passport to this marvelous realm and wonders that have enchanted readers young and old for more than a century. Lavishly illustrated by W. W. Denslow and John R. Neill, this volume includes The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Marvelous Land of Oz, Ozma of Oz, Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz and The Road to Oz.

Doing some reading with my tiny. We read Jonathan Mayberry‘s “The Cobbler of Oz” from OZ REIMAGINED last night. Today we‘re starting the official Oz series 😊 (We‘ll re-read them again when he‘s old enough to understand them!)

@Cinfhen please #saveme from myself... these are all my tweets that Anne has liked! It makes me smile (& occasionally jump up & down) when she likes them!

The Chasers did The Wizard of Oz for #letssinganddanceforcomicrelief - Anne was the scarecrow!

Finished week 2 very early as The Wizard of Oz is not very long.
It's been a long time since I've seen the movie but from what I remember it was pretty similar to the book.
A few extra things in the book of course. My copy has cute little pictures throughout the book which I am always a fan of!

As someone who LOOOVES the movie, this was wonderful. I listened to the audiobook narrated by Anne Hathaway and she did different voices which I thought was a fun way to keep the story interesting

I hadn't read the book prior to now and I feel like I like it more than the movie which I'm surprised at because I love the movie. It feels more child appealing because dorothy is a child and while there are some graphic deaths it feels more for a kid than the movie did.

The King in Alice is so much like the King of the Jungle in the Wizard of oz. both a bit cowardly. Both need goading from the female lead, etc.

This was the first time I have ever read the book after loving the movie since I was a small child. It was definitely different from what I was expecting but wonderful still the same! I enjoyed this world of Oz so much! I really want to continue on with more books in this series!

#SassyBookworm😏 #TheWizardOfOz🌈🌪

Bradleygirl Oh wow I read all these as a kid! They get much trippier. Baum was a unique fairytale teller. 6mo
SassyBookworm @Bradleygirl I can imagine! Many of the characters where quite odd in this book, I can‘t wait to read more! 6mo
jb72 I was surprised at how different the book was from the movie. Maybe that‘s just from watching the movie as a kid and reading the book as an adult. I did enjoy it though. 6mo

SassyBookworm @jb72 yes! That was my thoughts exactly! I was thrown off a bit by how majorly different they were! 6mo
