bookshelves: male-author, young-adult

I bought this book at a little independent bookstore in Bardstown, Kentucky, because I really liked the bookstore and wanted to support it. I'm really not sure why I chose the Wizard of Oz, other than that I've never read it and it was cheap.

I really liked the book at the beginning, it was just simple and magical and took you off into another world. By the end I got kind of bored with the lack of complexity. I think it would be a fun book to read aloud to a child, but it doesn't go on my list of favorite children's books.

It was really interesting to see how the book compared to the movie. I want to see the movie again, but mostly what I want to see is the made for tv movie, the Dreamer of Oz, which tells the story of L. Frank Baum writing the book. Do any of my sisters remember if this is one our tapes we think was lent to the Nolans?
