When a huge cyclone transports the orphan Dorothy and her little dog Toto from Kansas to the Land of Oz, she fears that she will never see Aunt Em and Uncle Henry ever again. But she meets the Munchkins, and they tell her to follow the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City where the Wonderful Wizard of Oz will grant any wish. On the way, she meets the brainless Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion. The four friends set off to seek their heart's desires, and in a series of action-packed adventures they encounter a deadly poppy field, fierce animals, flying monkeys, a wicked witch, a good witch, and the Mighty Oz himself.

5.0 The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
I'm not sure if I ever read this book before, but I bought it thanks to the unusual illustration style of Michael Sieben, thinking Lily would like it. We just finished it up as her bedtime story, though at 2.5 years old, she's short on attention, so we'll be reading it again when she's older and mor...
