As Dorothy journeys down the yellow brick road to the Emerald City, hoping the Great and Terrible Wizard who lives there will help her return home, she shares adventures withe the famous trio of characters, defeats a wicked witch, and learns about the power of frienship, loyality, and self-confidence. While scholars have debated for decades over possible political meanings hidden within the tale, Baum himself claimed he simply wanted to write a"modernized fairy tale, in which the wonderment and joy are retained and the hearaches and nightmares are left out."
As it has done for generations past, this classic of fantasy adventure speaks movingly about wha every child needs: the Woodman's compassion, the Lion's courage, and the Scarecrow's wisdom.
