Weekly Book Special: October 26th-November 1st

In October of 1938, Judy Garland set out to make history on the MGM Studios Lot in Culver City, California. With no small help from the wizards at technicolor, MGM continued the fine tradition of reinventing L. Frank Baum’s wonderful world of Oz.

The Wizard of Oz
Written by L. Frank Baum, Illustrated by Lisabeth Zwerger, Hardcover 103 pages
List Price: $20.00, OUR PRICE: $6.95

Wizard of Oz

Along with adults and children, the land of Oz has always been irresistible to writers and artists. The immersive, fantasy world first envisioned by Baum in 1900 has reached iconic status as the greatest American fairytale of the 20th century.

Much like Dorothy, world-renowned illustrator Lisbeth Zwerger could not help returning to Oz. Zwerger reimagines Dorothy, Toto, the Tinman, the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion in her own signature style, providing a gorgeous accompaniment to Baum’s unaltered words.

The Wizard of Oz is a story that belongs on every bookshelf and this is an ideal edition for young people who are developing their love for reading. Amazon Reviews declare that “[Zwerger’s] characters have a poignance and oddity that escaped the makers of the Oz movie.”

This book is discounted only through November 1st. Purchase it for $6.95 (list price $20.00):
