Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Listening to The Wizard of Oz is an eye-opening experience. There’s more to this story’s plot, themes, and connections than is revealed in the movie classic. Anna Fields’ narration creates a new vision of a younger, sweeter Dorothy…a more adventurous journey to Oz; and a new ending.” AudioFile
“I have never known or heard of an American man or woman who has started to read The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and put it down without finishing it.” James Thurber
“If you ever talk to anyone who has written, you’ll always find a childhood in which, somewhere along the line, there’s a Wizard of Oz.” William Styron
The Wizard of Oz made a writer of me.” Salman Rushdie
