With stunning illustrations from celebrated artist Charles Santore and a child-friendly, abridged retelling that remains faithful to Frank L. Baum's original text, this Classic Edition of The Wizard of Oz is a must-have for every family's library.

Readers of all ages will follow the Yellow Brick Road on an unforgettable journey that takes them from Dorothy's gray Kansas home into the blue Munchkin land; the sparkling bejeweled Emerald City; the dark, foreboding forest; and the ruby-red throne room of Glinda the Good Witch in this gorgeously illustrated, classic edition of The Wizard of Oz.

Charles Santore renowned illustrations have been widely exhibited in museums and celebrated with recognitions such as the prestigious Hamilton King Award, the Society of Illustrators Award of Excellence, and the Original Art 2000 Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators. Santore is best known for his luminous interpretations of classic children's stories such as Snow White, The Night Before Christmas and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's Paul Revere's Ride, which was named 2004 Children's Book of the Year for Poetry by the Bank Street College Children's Book Committee. His illustrations for The Wizard of Oz, which is widely considered to be the quintessential illustrated version, were used as the scenic backdrops for a major television performance of the work.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Charles Santore turns L. Frank Baum's classic story, THE WIZARD OF OZ into an heirloom book. There are 100 pages in this abridgment of Dorothy's adventures, all fully illustrated, most full-page and many double-page spreads. Together they reinvigorate the tale in an oversized book which speaks volumes about the rich imaginations of Baum and Santore while making the book accessible to younger readers." -- Susie Wilde of Igniting Writing
"I look forward to bringing this book into my classroom on Monday. I have a feeling that many of my Wizard of Oz fans will be clamoring to read it." -- Katherine Sokolowski of Read, Write, Reflect
"THE WIZARD OF OZ: THE CLASSIC EDITION is a beautifully rendered book that is sure to quickly become a family favorite." -- Alex Baugh of Randomly Reading
