Synopsis

Designed to appeal to book lovers everywhere, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much-loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

Regarded as a modern fairy tale, L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz is one of America’s most cherished and enchanting children’s stories. This edition features original illustrations by W. W. Denslow, coloured by Barbara Frith, and an afterword by Professor Sarah Churchwell.

Follow Dorothy, and her loyal dog Toto, as they are carried away from Kansas by a cyclone to the wonderful world of Oz. Wandering down the yellow brick road Dorothy meets her three famous companions – a Scarecrow longing for a brain, a Tin Woodman wishing for a heart, a cowardly Lion yearning for some courage – and together they travel to the illustrious Emerald City where they hope all their dreams will come true.

Like Robin Hood, Alice or Winnie the Pooh, Baum's inventions . . . have become the mythological furniture of our children's minds, and of our own and our parents' . . . Funny and inventive
