All-Action Classics: The Wizard of Oz

by Ben Caldwell, L. Frank Baum, Ben Caldwell



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
L. Frank Baum's classic fantasy looks fabulous in this vivid, high-octane graphic-novel rendition, filled with kid-grabbing details.
In this action-filled graphic adaptation of the visionary children's classic, the Yellow Brick Road has never seemed brighter, the Wicked Witch more evil, or the Land of Oz more magical. When a tornado snaps up young Dorothy, dumping her in Oz, she knows she’s not in Kansas anymore. And when her only way home is with the help of an irate Wizard, Dorothy and her misfit friends embark on an unforgettable—and dangerous—journey.
Praise for the original edition of All-Action Classics: The Wizard of Oz
"The text is brief and full of modern touches . . . Dialogue is snappy, with a liberal use of humor and wisecracks. The animationlike artwork is full of movement . . . There is a cinematic feel that will appeal to young readers . . .this updated classic should find a different, and more welcoming, reception from kids.” —School Library Journal
