The Wonderful Wizard is still pretty wonderful

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (Oz, #1)The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a classic I never got around to reading as a child. I skipped over children’s books to comics and adult classics like “War and Peace.” Now, as an adult, I find the tale enjoyable and gratifying to read, with little editorial comments sprinkled throughout. My favorite:

“‘For,’ they said ‘there is not another city in all the world that is ruled by a stuffed man.’ And, so far as they knew, they were quite right.”
