    L. Frank Baum's timeless classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was the first uniquely American fairy tale. A combination of enchanting fantasy and piercing social commentary, this remarkable story has entertained and beguiled readers of all ages since it was first published in 1900.

    Ray Bradbury wrote in his Introduction, "Both [Baum and Shakespeare] lived inside their heads with a mind gone wild with wanting, wishing, hoping, shaping, dreaming."

    Story

    This is a classic book, and a story many people may only know from the film -- the original is well worth it. It's written in a very traditional 20th-century American style, straightforward and sensible, with a homespun quality that is very charming.

    Brooke Shields' performance is excellent, but very clearly aimed at young children. The book can be enjoyed by people of any age, and adults might consider a version with a little less forced theatricality.

    The Perry family's new house is perfect - except for the weird behavior of the neighbors, and that odd smell coming from a dark corner in the basement. Pity no one warned the family about the house. Now it's too late. Because the darkness at the bottom of the basement stairs is rising.

    Story

    Little's haunted house story is not the most bizarre or esoteric out there, but it's got something maybe even better: it's scary. Not necessarily keep-you-awake at night scary, but certainly shiver-as-you-listen scary.

    The characters can be grating, but partly because they are very familiar -- the way the parents relate to their kids can be extremely frustrating, but the same is true for all the real people I know who act the same way.

    Basically this is a great haunted house yarn, told in a compelling way by Dan Butler. Highly recommended.
