"The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (Illustrated)," by L. Frank Baum

If you are eagerly anticipating this Friday's release of the movie Oz the Great and Powerful, then you may want to catch up on your Oz history with these superbly formatted, illustrated classics. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is the book that started it all. If you've never had the pleasure of reading the original version of the story (silver slippers?! the gruesome history of the tin man?!) with all the illustrations as Baum and Denslow intended, then you have a wonderful treat in store.

"None that I have seen look as good as these lovingly-edited versions from the Eltanin folks. They have taken pains to get the formatting and illustrations right in all their rich colors and period details. We today take it for granted that we can get most things in any colors we want. But the Victorian era when the Oz books were created was in fact the first time mass-market items like books and clothing came in such bright colors thanks to the nineteenth-century invention of cheap synthetic dyes. These ebook versions are well worth their modest price." -- Amazon reviewer
