When Dorothy and her little dog Toto are caught in a tornado they and their Kansas farmhouse are suddenly transported to Oz where Munchkins live monkeys fly and Wicked Witches rule Desperate to return home and wit ENGLISH The Wonderful Wizard of Oz ITALIANODorothy is a young girl who lives with her aunts in a small farm in Kansas Due to a tornado she is catapulted with her house in a freaky village Dorothy's journey which I discovered at 38 thanks to my daughter and to the well established habit of reading something to her before going to bed begins in this way The thing that impressed me most about this wonderful story is that the title The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is rather misleading Yes because Oz is neither the protagonist of the novel nor the ultimate goal of Dorothy's journey Oz appears or less at half of the novel and he remains in the story for no than 50 pages Surely Dorothy and her cheerful company start the search for the wizard of Oz almost immediately However the story that involves directly or indirectly Oz ends in an unexpected way almost prematurely and in my opinion this is a strenght of the story When Oz disappeared from the story it was funny to see the confused face of my daughter saying«WHAT? HE'S GONE?? HOW IS IT POSSIBLE??»and I realized how successful was L Frank Baum's attempt to mislead the readersYoung people heartly fantasize Me tooVote 8Dorothy è una fanciulla che vive con gli zii in una piccola fattoria nell'Kansas A causa di una tromba d'aria la sua abitazione viene catapultata con lei dentro in paese uanto meno bislacco Comincia così il viaggio di Dorothy che ho scoperto a 38 anni suonati grazie a mia figlia e all'abitudine ormai consolidata di farsi leggere ualcosa prima di andare a letto non la trasposizione cinematografica uella la conoscevo già La cosa che più mi ha colpito di uesto splendido racconto è come il titolo Il meraviglioso mago di Oz sia fuorviante Si perchè Oz non è nè il protagonista nè l'obiettivo finale della ricerca della piccola Dorothy Il personaggio di Oz appare più o meno a metà racconto e ci rimane per non più di 50 pagine Di sicuro la ricerca del mago di Oz comincia uasi fin da subito da parte della piccola Dorothy e della sua allegra compagnia Tuttavia la vicenda che coinvolge direttamente o indirettamente Oz si conclude in maniera inaspettata uasi prematuramente e uesto secondo me è un punto di forza del racconto Con l'uscita di scena del mago di Oz vedere la faccia spiazzata di mia figlia che dice «Ma come Se n'è andato? COME E' POSSIBILE???»è stato divertente appagante e mi fa capire uanto sia riuscito il tentativo di L Frank Baum di spiazzare i lettoriFantasticano assai i più piccoli E anche ioVoto 8

The Wonderful Wizard of OzH the Wicked Witch of the West on their trail Dorothy and Toto together with new friends the Tin Woodsman Scarecrow and cowardly Lion embark on a fantastic uest along the Yellow Brick Road in search of the Emerald My 8 year old decided she wanted to read this one and we just finished buddy reading two different copies The copy she’s reading is a new Scholastic version which is just a simple paperback with an adorable cover I went ahead and picked up this 100th anniversary edition for our home library because it’s illustrated large print and hardcover which I love I’m sure most already know the story The beginning opens with a cyclone that carries Dorothy in her house along with her little dog Toto all the way to a foreign land Her house falls on a wicked witch—killing her—resulting in Dorothy becoming a hero On her journey to find the wizard she meets a scarecrow a tin woodman and a cowardly lionDorothy’s love for her new found friends is heartwarming and there isn’t anything she wouldn’t do for them Together they embark on an adventure to find the Emerald City Each of the four travelers has a reuest for the wizard the scarecrow wants brains the tin woodman a heart and the lion needs courage Dorothy’s only reuest is to be sent back home to Aunt Em in Kansas It’s uite fascinating what can be accomplished if you only believe “No matter how dreary and gray our homes are we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country be it ever so beautiful There is no place like home” I can’t remember the last time I read The Wonderful Wizard of Oz but it was probably sometime around 5th grade or so We had a tattered up copy in our school library I’m not even sure if I finished it because this time around I was amazed with the differences in the book compared to the Hollywood movie Some events were left out in the film while others were added in which made it even exciting including the entire beginning of the movie Details were also different Not only that parts of the book were fairly dark for young readers He seized his axe which he had made very sharp and as the leader of the wolves came on the Tin Woodman swung his arm and chopped the wolf’s head from its body so that it immediately died As soon as he could raise his axe another wolf came up and he also fell under the sharp edge of the Tim Woodman’s weapon There were forty wolves and forty times a wolf was killed; so that at last they all lay dead in a heap before the Woodman We enjoyed reading about the magical world L Frank Baum has created in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Just picture it with fighting trees flying monkeys munchkins and witches There was no telling what would happen next We connected with all the characters tooI was one of those children who waited for the movie to come on local television channels every single year I was entranced when Dorothy got sucked up into the tornado along with her house and Toto One of the most exciting parts for me was when the movie transitioned from black and white to color I was obsessed with the movie The book may not be as extravagant as the movie and there are many differences but the book is still magical with great characters There are many good lessons for children to learn as wellThis was a very creative children’s fantasy in my opinion The illustrations throughout were a treat and make the story even interesting It’s a book perfect for all ages I’m not sure if we’l
