An iconic classic, The Wizard of Oz by Frank L. Baum is a must-read for adults and children alike.

Follow the yellow brick road!

Dorothy thinks she is lost forever when a terrifying tornado crashes through Kansas and whisks her and her dog, Toto, far away to the magical land of Oz. To get home Dorothy must follow the yellow brick road to Emerald City and find the wonderfully mysterious Wizard of Oz. Together with her companions the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion whom she meets on the way, Dorothy embarks on a strange and enchanting adventure.

With a charming introduction by award-winning Cornelia Funke, The Wizard of Oz is one of the twelve wonderful classics relaunched in Puffin Classics in March 2008.
