The Wizard of Oz

by L. Frank Baum

This is the novel that inspired a most beloved movie!  Lots of things are the same:  Dorothy, Toto, Aunt Em & Uncle Henry, good witches, bad witches, the lion, the scarecrow, the tin woodman, and Oz.

What is different:  silver, not ruby slippers; the flying monkeys, and well, the trip to Oz is not a dream.  Lots of other details have been changed, but who cares?

If you ever felt the need to read this, it's a quick and easy read.
