When Dorothy is swept away from her home in Kansas by a cyclone, she finds herself in a mysterious land inhabited by equally mysterious people.

The reader did an excellent job and made the book great fun to listen to. It was different from the film, but that just made it all the more interesting to hear what was going to happen next. Really enjoyed this one.

Such a fun and realistic way to read a child novel. A must-have masterpiece for every kids in every era.

I read all the Oz books when I was young and loved them. I've tried to get my children to read them, but none have been interested. We just took a twelve day road trip, and since I had a captive audience, I chose to listen to this as we traveled across Kansas. The whole family was riveted, from my husband and teenage sons down to my 6 & 9 year old daughters. They said they wish there would be a new movie made of the entire book. After we finished this one, we immediately listened to The Marvelous Land of Oz. The reader of this book does a good job.day road trip, and since I had a captive audience, I chose to listen to this as we traveled across Kansas.

Excellent job of reading this book. I was shocked to learn this short book is nothing like the movie! It was still fun to listen to.

Subject: Short Intro
Is this the original?!? I've never read the book so maybe it is, but the introduction was soooo short! What about Ms. Gulch? What about the fortune teller? Were those just in the theatrical versions?!?

Very very good book! Thx
