Ray Bradbury wrote in his Introduction, "Both [Baum and Shakespeare] lived inside their heads with a mind gone wild with wanting, wishing, hoping, shaping, dreaming," and it is this same hunger that makes all of us continue to seek out the story of Oz - and be nourished by it.

Great for kids
This is a classic book, and a story many people may only know from the film -- the original is well worth it. It's written in a very traditional 20th-century American style, straightforward and sensible, with a homespun quality that is very charming.
Brooke Shields' performance is excellent, but very clearly aimed at young children. The book can be enjoyed by people of any age, and adults might consider a version with a little less forced theatricality.

Bravo Brooke Shields!
Brooke is amazing! I hope she reads the entire series of Anne of Green Gables. It would be such an audible delight!
