Publisher's Summary

When young Dorothy and her dog Toto are whisked away from Kansas by a tornado, they embark on a journey of self-discovery. As Dorothy and Toto travel through enchanted lands toward the Emerald City, where they will seek the aid of the great and powerful Wizard of Oz, they are joined by such colorful characters as the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodsman, and the Cowardly Lion, all the while avoiding opponents such as the Wicked Witch of the West. Ultimately, Dorothy learns to rely on herself, and that "There's no place like home."

Wrong Narrator Listed!! Great reading!!!

This audiobook is read by John McDonoughn NOT Flo Gibson! This, however, was a pleasant surprise as McDonough is one of the best narrators of audiobooks around. His many voices and his reading of the story are pleasing to the ear. It feels as if your grandfather is reading it to you and is as much into the story as YOU are! I would highly recommend this version, especially if you are listening with a boy.

Good Children's Book

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Gibson is a great narrator and brings much life to the story. I found the book to be interesting, but fairly repetative and drawn out. It would be a good book for a child as young as 6 or 7.

As an adult, I enjoyed it too.
