Title: The Wizard of Oz
Author: Lyman Frank Baum
Illustrator: W.W. Denslow
The cover page of the book created so much interest in me to know the fun, the group of friends are going to have.
The book was gifted to me by my aunt.
This is an adventurous story of a girl named Dorothy who lives in Kansas, USA. She loses her home in a cyclone and finds it with the help of her friends on the way– the scarecrow, tinman, a lion and her dog Toto. They went to the Wizard of Oz, asking for their wish and finally the wizard grants their wish. Dorothy and her dog Toto reach their home in Kansas happily.
This story conveys many values, especially that we must not give up on our goals and we must work as a team to win. It also says that we must focus on our goals and overcome the problems on the way.
My favourite part of the story was when Dorothy met Glinda, the good witch of the south.
This is an encouraging magical story. The book has an age rating of 7+ but I will recommend this story for all age groups. The font size is good and the illustration involves us into the story and make us feel that we are with Dorothy and her friends.
On a scale of 5, I will give 5 star rating for this book.*
*On a scale of 1-5, 5 being the highest
