Readers of all ages will follow the Yellow Brick Road in this unforgettable and colorful journey that takes us from Dorothy’s gray Kansas home into the blue Munchkin land; from the sparkling bejeweled Emerald City to the dark, foreboding forest; and finally, to the ruby-red throne room of Glinda the Good Witch. Join the found family of Dorothy and Toto, Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and the Tin Woodman as they journey through the wonderful land of Oz.
