Love the movie but the book beats it hands down.
I just got done reading this to my 6 year old son. He had seen the classic movie and was more scared of the sepia toned cyclone scene than of any thing else. In the book he was anxiously scared of the wicked witch of the west that to get past that part I substituted his favorite female cartoon character. So, the Minnie Mouse of the West was born. I never realized how many omissions from the movie were approved. The book has so much mor going for it then the movie it is a must read for any parents with children.
This book is pretty good. I wanted to read it because I am in our school play, The Wizard of Oz. The movie is fantastic, but VERY DIFFERENT. This is probably one time where I would say the movie is better than the book, but the book I'd definitely worth reading. I enjoyed reading it! (in 4 hours! Lol)
