Off to Oz -GIVEAWAY!

Monday, September 9, 2013
Yea... some of you may have seen that here at my blog it is The Wonderful Wizard of Oz month for Classic's Retold!  Since this whole month is about Classics Retold I have a blog hop going on just for this occasion!! (Thanks to I am a Reader Not a Writer for help spreading the word).  I will be giving away The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum Volume 1 (which contains the first 3 books!).  Shipped from Amazon.  This is a pretty wonderful book!   It includes:

In The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Dorothy and her dog, Toto, find themselves in a strange land called Oz after their Kansas house is swept away by a cyclone. Here they meet the Munchkins and join the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion on an unforgettable journey to the Emerald City, where the all-powerful Wizard of Oz lives. Can he help Dorothy return home?
In The Marvelous Land of Oz, a young boy named Tip escapes from a witch and sets out to explore land of Oz. Along the way, he meets the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman, as well as some new friends like Jack Pumpkinhead and the Wooden Sawhorse. Eventually, Tip’s journey takes him to the Emerald City, where he realizes that his life will be changed forever.
In Ozma of Oz, Dorothy is sailing to Australia when a huge storm washes her overboard. She only survives by clinging to a chicken crate. Eventually she and a yellow hen named Billina wash up on the magic shore of Ev where they meet the mechanical man Tik Tok. But Dorothy and Billina are taken prisoner by the evil Nome King who has captured the royal family of Ev. Only Ozma of Oz can save them, but will she be in time?

  5. I have read the entire original series when I was a young girl and loved it. I enjoy the movie as an entirely separate entity since they are so vastly different. I would love to see a movie based on the actual book---I haven't seen the new movie yet so if it's based accurately on the book, forgive me. The Wizard of Oz is basically one of the first Steampunk/Cyberpunk books!

  28. How fun! I haven't read the Wonderful Wizard of Oz - in fact, I've never made it through the movie. As a kid those flying monkeys really scared me and that was it - maybe I should give it another shot now that I'm grown!
