The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has been called "the first true American fairy tale" and it richly deserves the title. The story of Dorothy's epic journey through a strange land, filled with terrifying enemies and loyal allies, resonates today as much as it did when it was first written, at the turn of the last century. You've probably seen the movie countless times, so you might not expect any surprises from the book. But when you listen, you'll be charmed by how imaginative it is, and in a way that's different from the film. I dearly love the movie, but, in this reading, I've tried to approach the story as if I'd never seen it. My Dorothy is a little younger than her cinematic counterpart and her trio of beloved friends - The Scarecrow, The Tin Woodsman and The Cowardly Lion - are all just a little sillier. It's hard to escape from the shadow of the MGM spectacular, but I've done my best. I hope you have as much fun listening as I'm having recording! So sit back, put on your slippers (ruby, silver or whatever color you like) and watch out for flying monkeys! Load up your MP3 player and remember - There's no place like home!
