One of the true classics of American literature, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over four generations. This is probably one of the most beautiful digital version ever made of this story, containing over 100 gorgeous illustrations. The story chronicles the adventures of a girl named Dorothy Gale in the Land of Oz. As Baum says in the introduction "It aspires to being a modernized fairy tale, in which the wonderment and joy are retained and the heartaches and nightmares are left out." And it succeeds wonderfully. It is one of the best-known stories in American popular culture and has been widely translated.

L. Frank Baum's the Wonderful Wizard of Oz on Stage and Screen to 1939

Swartz reminds us in that various stage and screen dramatizations of Baum's story preceded and influenced the 1939 film. This richly illustrated book contains many rare photographs, film stills, sketches, theater programs, and movie advertisements from the different productions. Piecing together the Chicago and Broadway stage productions (1902-3) from contemporary reviews, surviving script pages, and published song lyrics, Swartz shows how Baum and his many collaborators worked to transform the book into a popular theatrical attraction -- often requiring significant alterations to the original story.

“Even with eyes protected by the green spectacles, Dorothy and her friends were at first dazzled by the brilliancy of the wonderful City. The streets were lined with beautiful houses all built of green marble and studded everywhere with sparkling emeralds. They walked over a pavement of the same green marble, and where the blocks were joined together were rows of emeralds, set closely, and glittering in the brightness of the sun. The window panes were of green glass; even the sky above the City had a green tint, and the rays of the sun were green.” “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” is an American children's novel written by L. Frank Baum. It was first published in 1900.

The fantasyland of Oz continues to fascinate steadfast Oz fans. They sympathize with the tin woodsman in his need for a heart, the cowardly lion in his need for courage, and with Dorothy as she searches for a way to return home to Kansas. In the Origin of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, author Michele Rubatino reveals the mystery behind the evidence regarding the source of the maps found in Tik-Tok of Oz. Rubatino discusses the origin of the maps that Baum claims he discovered, rather than penned from his own imagination. The Origin of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz provides evidence to show the maps found in the Oz books, forty of them in all, were derived from drawing blueprints taken from the text of a King James Version Bible dating from around 1611. This information found by Baum formed the foundation for the creation of this fantasy series. Rubatino's discovery will help Oz enthusiasts, theologians, and all interested in the works of Baum to decipher the many facets he included in his stories. It will help fans gain a better perspective on the mysteries still to be found in the Bible and the Oz series.
