First issued in 1904, L. Frank Baum's The Marvelous Land of Oz is the story of the wonderful adventures of the young boy named Tip as he travels throughout the many lands of Oz. Here he meets with our old friends the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman, as well as some new friends like Jack Pumpkinhead, the Wooden Sawhorse, the Highly Magnified Woggle-Bug, and the amazing Gump. How they thwart the wicked plans of the evil witch Mombi and overcome the rebellion of General Jinjur and her army of young women is a tale as exciting and endearing today as it was when first published over eighty years ago.

Simply done well.
No annoying voices or sound effects. The narrator speaks clearly and the sound quality is consistant. A great reading of a timeless classic. For those who have not gone beyond the first Oz book I highly recomend they do so.
I really enjoyed the book and the reader did a great job with the voices.
Lost me at "ek-SET-ruh"...
'Et Cetera' or 'Etc.' is pronounced: "et-SET-ruh" or "et-SET-er-uh." It's a 'T,' not a 'K' (or 'hard C') sound!!! I think it's nice that this is available for free and commend the effort, but PLEASE take the time to MAKE SURE you are pronouncing things properly. What if this becomes a child's favorite thing to listen to? Reinforcing mispronunciations in a child's mind is bad news. Sometimes it's worth purchasing professional productions for this very reason. Quality control.
