Book of the Month - The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

1st September 2014

"The road to the city of Emeralds is paved with yellow brick," said the Witch, "so you cannot miss it. When you get to Oz do not be afraid of him, but tell your story and ask him to help you. Goodbye, my dear."

This special edition of L. Frank Baum's well-loved classic - complete and unabridged - is bursting with colour. The brand new illustrations are really like stepping into the magical land of Oz as Dorothy and Toto embark upon their journey along the yellow brick road.

Meet the loveable (but rather forgetful) Scarecrow, the rusty Tin Woodman and Cowardly Lion as they join Dorothy in her quest to ask the Great Wizard of Oz for help. But not without facing the dangers of the Wicked Witch of the West and her flying monkeys, deadly poppyfields and "bears with heads like tigers" along the way!

This book is part of the Usborne Illustrated Originals series and is a brilliant gift idea. It is available at the special offer price of just £7.99 (RRP £12.99) and with its padded hardback cover and ribbon marker, will certainly be something children treasure for years to come.

What we love about this book is that it tells a well-loved story, but in a new way for children to rediscover. The enduring appeal of a classic, coupled with whimsical illustrations will ignite imagination and become a real collector's item. It's time to laugh the day away in the merry old land of Oz...

But don't just take our word for it, have a peek inside.

Sounds great, how do I get one?
