The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is an American classic. A children's novel written by author L. Frank Baum and illustrated by W.W. Denslow, it is one of the best known stories ever written.

The story chronicles the adventures of a young farm girl named Dorothy in the magical Land of Oz, after she and her pet dog Toto are swept away from their Kansas home by a tornado. Her adventures with the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion are known by almost everyone. The author followed up this first book with thirteen additional Oz books that are sequels to the first story.
