It’s here, the final weekend of January and time for discussion of our thoughts on L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz! Leave links to your posts in the comments, or feel free to discuss below. My own post will be up sometime later this weekend.
If you’ve never read it before (and were only familiar with the 1939 film version, or another adaptation), was there anything that surprised you? Does reading it make you want to check out one of the many adaptations? If I have time this weekend, I hope to revisit the 1939 adaptation, but I’m also intrigued by the 1910 (silent) and 1925 versions (both available for free online–follow the links).
