Publisher's Summary

Swept away by a cyclone from the Kansas prairies to the Land of Oz, Dorothy and her dog, Toto, must find their way home. Traveling to the Emerald City with a new band of friends - the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion - Dorothy's fate is in the hands of a great and terrible wizard. But a wicked enemy stands in her way.

For readers familiar only with the iconic 1939 film, delightful surprises are in store along Baum's original yellow brick road. Considered "America's first fairy tale," "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" has found a home in the collective imagination of the entire world.

Disappointed

I honestly couldn't listen to more than a few moments of this. I read all of the Oz series as a child, and they've been one of my favorite series ever since. I was thrilled at the prospect of being able to share that love with my daughters, given that we were about to set off for an 26hour road trip. It took a shamefully brief period for me to apologise to my kids, and unceremoniously turn it off. The narration was a mess in a couple of different ways. The rhythm was jerky, the candence impossible to listen to. I honestly cannot remember what of the book was read because I was so thoroughly distracted by the narrator. Stories are meant to sweep us out of our lives and into the imagination with vivid and striking awe. Even my girls said the voice was too weird. I don't recommend this copy. As it stands, I'll find another series for our Audible adventures, and will read the Oz series ourselves together while taking turns instead.
