L. Frank Baum's classic fantasy looks fabulous in this vivid, high-octane graphic-novel rendition, filled with kid-grabbing details.

In this action-filled graphic adaptation of the visionary children's classic, the Yellow Brick Road has never seemed brighter, the Wicked Witch more evil, or the Land of Oz more magical. When a tornado snaps up young Dorothy, dumping her in Oz, she knows she's not in Kansas anymore. And when her only way home is with the help of an irate Wizard, Dorothy and her misfit friends embark on an unforgettable--and dangerous--journey.

L. Frank Baum

Lyman Frank Baum, born May 15 1856, was an American author of children's books, best known for writing The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He wrote thirteen novel sequels, nine other fantasy novels, and a host of other works (55 novels in total, plus four "lost" novels, 83 short stories, over 200 poems, an unknown number of scripts, and many miscellaneous writings), and made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and screen.

His works anticipated such century-later commonplaces as television, augmented reality, laptop computers (The Master Key), wireless telephones (Tik-Tok of Oz), women in high risk, action-heavy occupations (Mary Louise in the Country), and the ubiquity of advertising on clothing (Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work).

On May 5, 1919, Baum suffered from a stroke. He died quietly the next day, nine days short of his 63rd birthday.His final Oz book, Glinda of Oz, was published on July 10, 1920, a year after his death. The Oz series was continued long after his death by other authors, notably Ruth Plumly Thompson, who wrote an additional nineteen Oz books.
