After Dorothy's house is carried off by a tornado, she finds herself in the strange and magical Land of Oz. With the help of her new friends the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion, she must persuade the Wizard of Oz to help her get back to Kansas. L. Frank Baum's timeless fantasy is beautifully recreated in this enchanting graphic novel. Simona Bursi's exquisitely detailed illustrations bring the classic tale to life. The colourful comic strip format has proven appeal, particularly for reluctant readers. A map of Oz and background information about the original novel give added value.
