More than a century after L. Frank Baum first released this magical tale of a young girl, Brooke Shields entrances a new generation of young listeners with her narration of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Dorothy thinks she is lost forever when a terrifying tornado crashes through Kansas and whisks her
and her dog, Toto, far away to the magical land of Oz. To get home Dorothy must follow the yellow brick road to Emerald City and ask for help from the mysterious Wizard of Oz. Together with her companions the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion whom she meets along the way, Dorothy embarks on a strange and enchanting adventure.
This edition includes L. Frank Baum’s original introduction to the story, read by the actor Paul Rudd.
