    A good read. A little shocking...

    I first picked up this book when someone pointed out that the movie was quite different than the original tale. I found that it kept my interest and was an easy read from start to finish. I would rate is at 3.5 stars because I found the end a little lacking and because I don't necessarily feel that this story is appropriate for all youngsters as it is advertised to be. I must say, this edition is beautifully rendered and I am certain to enjoy more books from this publisher. It contains many, if not all, beautiful original illustrations and the original illustrated covers for each chapter. Wonderfully put together, seriously. Beautiful. However, I must also say that although the narrative is quite pleasant and that this book is a very easy read, I am a little shocked that small children as young as 6 years old have been encouraged to read this book. The imagery of beasts (many, many beasts) and even the Tin Woodman for that matter, being beheaded....well, I personally, would not want to read this to my nephew until he is a tad older. Nevertheless, I would still highly recommend this book. It is a classic and bearing in mind that pretty much all original fairy tales were far more gruesome that all the "Disneyafied" versions, the violence is forgivable in my opinion. Give it a read and find out what colour the ruby slippers really were!

    Enjoyable!

    Very enjoyable. Compared to the story, almost the same! I love it. My child loved it too.

    Almost Perfect

    I would have rated it whole five stars if all of these three friends of Dorothy - the scarecrow, the tin woodman and the lion had not preferred to be the kings at the end.

    So different from the movie and so much better. It is a lot more violent and funny, a fantastic book!
