Out of Oz - The Final Volume in the Wicked Years

Book Review   by:MaryCassells     Original Author: Gregory Maguire
ª
 
I don't remember when I first read the author's books but I was a fan ever since.

Judy Garland was the first actress of the movie, "the Wizard of Oz.". She was Dorothy of a land I do not know where. I am a Canadian so I don't know the spelling of the place in the States.

Dorothy lives with her Aunty Emm.

This is where the story begins.

The Author of the original Wizard of Oz escapes me. The moviedoes not. I loved the movire even though I was scared silly in parts of it. Mom even bought me a recording. Well the recording was for my other three sisters as well.

The author of Out of Oz is Gregory Maguire. He lives near Boston. A lot of my relatives live near Boston.

This author writes the story of the land of Oz the view of the "Wicked Witch of the West".

The book is professionally produced as well. The book is hard covered with beautiful pictures. The pictures show the map of Oz.

I couldn't afford to buy the book at Indigo but the library in my city must have bought it. I hope the writer gets good royalties. Indigo is the best bookstore in my city. The other bookstores don't.

    I don't want to spoil the read. I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised. The writer has several other books based on old fairy tales.

    Wizard of Oz

    Hi Mary! I used to watch The Wizard of Oz movie every year when I was little. Dorothy was living in Kansas when the tornado hit. The original author was L. Frank Baum. This version sounds very interesting since it is written from the Wicked Witch's point of view.
