 Book Description In this dazzling full-color gift edition, L.

The 411 by Maria:

A beautiful version of this timeless story perfect for grades 3-6. I found it refreshing and remember reading the story when I was a kid. The original story is much different than the movie which I had forgotten after so many years of seeing the movie.  The main characters are still there but instead of a Tin Man we have a Tin Woodsmen and the Good Witch is just a little woman with three little men who were kept in slavery by the Wicked Witch of the East.

I love the pictures throughout the book and the big bold words that break up the story. This is a perfect editing for younger kids. They will undoubtedly love the Classics after reading this.

Hopefully Handsome will be interested in reading this for his summer reading and Goddess soon after. I will follow up on his opinion after the summer.
