Publisher's Summary

One of the best-loved children’s stories of all time, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz describes the adventures of young Dorothy, who is swept away from her Kansas farm in a cyclone, and lands in the strange country of Oz. This audiobook is ideal for young listeners (ages 5 to 12) to discover for themselves that a book can contain so much more adventure than a movie. 

Although the 1939 movie starring Judy Garland was immensely popular, it left out many parts of this story. While this four-hour audiobook edition is faithful to the original novel, it includes much more than just the spoken word. This premium audio edition will also kindle your child’s imagination with mysterious sounds such as winged monkeys hooting and flapping, animals growling, Munchkin bells, a flowing river, castle doors, Toto barking, chopping down trees, magic witches’ music, and even the clunky tinkling of a china cow! It's not just a narration - it also features in-character stereo conversations between brave and innocent young Dorothy, the lovable Scarecrow without a brain, the sad Tin Man without a heart, the blustery Lion without courage, and many, many others. Although this story is more than a hundred years old, its magic has not faded. 

The 21st century success of the Broadway musical Wicked (set in the land of Oz) has prompted two new movies for 2013, also based partly on Dorothy’s adventures in Oz. If you or child has seen, or you plan to see any of these Oz shows, then you should also find out how it all began. Set your child off on the original magical trip: this captivating audio journey, along the yellow brick road to see The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

The Narrator's Voice of the story was relaxed,calmed and easy to enjoy.And this story was just like the movie version in 1939.The sound effects of the story was strong,magical and breathtaking for a child or an adult listener.I highly recommend this beautiful kind audiobook to anyone for the children or the adults in their listening audio library.
