Wizard of Oz
One of the best-loved children’s stories of all time:
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz describes the adventures of a young girl named Dorothy, who is swept away from her Kansas farm in a cyclone, and lands in the strange country of Oz.
This audio book is ideal for young listeners (age 4 to 12) to discover for themselves that a book can contain so much more adventure than a movie. Although the 1939 movie starring Judy Garland was immensely popular, it left out many episodes of this story.
While this four-hour audio book edition is entirely faithful to the original novel, it also includes much more than just the spoken word. This premium audio edition will also prompt your child’s imagination; with mysterious sounds such as winged monkeys flapping, animals growling, Munchkin bells, a flowing river, castle doors, Toto barking, chopping down trees, the music of witches’ magic, and the tinkling of a china milkmaid with her china cow!
It features in-character stereo conversations between brave and innocent young Dorothy, the lovable Scarecrow without a brain, the sad Tin Man without a heart, the blustery Lion without courage, and many others.

Although this story is more than a hundred years old, its magic has not faded. The success of the Broadway musical “Wicked” – based on the Wizard of Oz - has prompted two new movies, also based on Dorothy’s adventures in Oz. These new movies are both due for release in the next few months:
