    "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is not only a classic film familiar to just about everyone but a cautionary tale that not-so-subtly warns us to "peek behind the curtain." That lesson is particularly valuable when analyzing politics in the United States, both current and past. Surely, there's no place like home. This should be required reading for all Americans."

    "A definite classic, with a lovely relationship between a little girl and her dog. I have to admit after reading this book when I was nine years old, I begged my mother for a dog about a hundred times because I needed a companion to get thru the unknown future dangers with. I think this book is great for kids, it's whimsical, magical, and transports you to another world that you've never known. "

    "This book is an absolutely amazing story! Every page is thought out with such exquisite detail. The story was a bit long for my youngest child, but I just made it up as I went along. He got the gist of it and he really only cares about the amazing pictures anyway. The book has to be stored away from little hands, but it's a special treat for my little guy any time we pull it out to read. Totally recommend this to anyone trying to get their kids into reading!"
