it was amazing

My only familiarity with the Wizard of Oz story is from the Judy Garland movie, which I've always loved. So, I was a little wary of this book since the author stated it would be an interpretation of the original novel. The basic premise is the same and familiar - the scarecrow, tin man and cowardly lion are all there - but the actual story and adventure that Dorothy and her 3 friends go on in Oz is very different. And, really so much better. And, the illustrations were so fantastic - whimsical, warm, beautiful.
