The story that taught the world “there’s no place like home”
In this fairy tale so magical that it seems every child is born knowing it, a tornado transports Dorothy Gale and her dog, Toto, from the flat prairies of Kansas to the marvelous Land of Oz. A fantastic journey soon follows, as Dorothy travels a yellow brick road in search of a sorcerer with the power to send her home. Joining her are the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion, each of whom has a wish just as important as Dorothy’s. All of their dreams will come true if they can only make it to the Emerald City and the wonderful Wizard of Oz.
One of the most beloved children’s books of all time, L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has inspired countless adaptations, including the classic 1939 film starring Judy Garland.
