    Skottie Young's art is gorgeous, and I like Dorothy as a young girl (as opposed to Judy Garland playing a teenager), since it's more believable to me that she would disarm and charm everyone she meets in the fantasy world that she finds herself in. However, there wasn't magic to the storytelling for me, and, although I think that kids who weren't familiar with the story, and adults who adore The Wizard of Oz in all its forms would enjoy this, I wouldn't blanket recommend it.

    The artwork is outstanding. Skottie Young is an artist to follow.

    Twenty-four pages of brilliantly illustrated story that cleverly tells the complete version in very few words. Mind you this is the real version of the story and not the Hollywood version. Having just finished the original classic version, I found that the key elements of the story and the direct statements needed to bring the points of the story across were featured in this Volume One edition of eight volume set.

A great way to introduce this classic story to young readers. Can't wait to read the rest of the set. Did I mention the entire book was only 24 pages of great illustrations. Part of the Spotlight series from Marvel Imprints distributed by Abdo. Great for libraries of classrooms.

    Loved this book, the illustrations are amazing and even though it deviates from the original story it is a very good modern telling. It was very interesting and for kids that may not have been interested in this book in its original form can love it now too.
