The Wizard of Oz

Since its publication in September 1900, The Wizard of Oz has become America's greatest and best-beloved homegrown fairytale. It is one of the most read children's books and has engendered a long series of sequels, stage plays, musicals, movies, and TV shows. The Oz story has become a classic because it blends elements of traditional magic, such as witches, with ones of the early twentieth-century American reality, such as a Kansas cyclone, a scarecrow, and a man made of tin. Despite its many particularly American attributes, including a wizard from Omaha, it has universal appeal, demonstrated by numerous translations and dramatizations. Come with us to the land of Oz as we join in the fantasy of the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, Toto and Dorothy all trying to obtain their own desires.

Written by L. Frank Baum
