L. Frank Baum's The Wizard Of Oz.

I'm such a laugh when I borrowed this book from Lea. I thought it's a love story. Hahaha. I've seen this book mentioned in different books and I was curious to read it. It's indeed a classic!

Hailed as the first original American fairy tale, The Wizard of Oz inspired countless sequels and imitations, as well as the classic American musical film and the Broadway musical The Wiz. In L. Frank Baum's imaginative story, Dorothy Gale takes a magical journey from the American heartland into the wonderful land of Oz to meet the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion.
My copy is not the original copy but I'm very greatful that it was unaltered. This one's a really nice story with Dorothy being thrown away to a strange land from Kansas by a cyclone. Plus, killing a wicked witch and not knowing why. Plus meeting a Scarecrow, a Tin Woodman and a Lion who wants a brain, heart and courage but they didn't know they really have the ability to think, love and scare away. They're very oblivious about it.

Anyway, you SHOULD have read this because if you don't... gosh, you're an outspacer.
