The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum was a hit from the start. Published in 1900, the story of Dorothy and her friends the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion captured the public's imagination.
Dorothy is a farm girl from Kansas who lives with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry. She finds herself on a journey beyond her wildest imagination and learns that while adventure is certainly exciting, there's no place like home.
Because our version is based on the 1900s book and not the movie, there may be some things about the story that you will be surprised about. Namely the slippers are silver and not ruby among other things.
