I did read this years ago and I did enjoy it, but the movie tops it. Still all the magic is here at the beginning. An excellent book! My primary school library had a copy of The Wizard of Oz with full-colour illustrations, which I absolutely adored. It was lovely to revisit such a lovely story.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz : Illustrated First Edition
Pop-up books will always remain popular among children. It was probably the spring of when I was walking home after school on a bright and sunny day in Karachi. Sometimes I used to walk on the edge of the street taking the long-way home and sometimes I used to cut across a huge grass-less playground. On this day, I decided to use the shortcut. As I was walking over the playground, my eyes caught hold of a book lying across my path.
I picked it up. It was a cover-less book. Anyway, I took it home with me. I was hardly interested in a guy called L. Frank Baum at the time. I finished the entire book in one sitting, as it was that interesting. So in a true sense, "Oz" became my first schoolboy storybook. A few months later I moved back to Calcutta leaving all my books and comic-books behind. Somehow their misfortune turned out to be my treasure trove and an everlasting memory. An extract from the book. I thoroughly enjoyed myself while watching the film too. I have also seen a couple of other versions of "Oz" on film.

My disappointment with the children's classics with the exception of Pinocchio has continued with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. It isn't bad. It really isn't, but it is not great either. It's nowhere near great. I wish I could say I was baffled by how this became the worldwide sensation it became, but that would be a lie. It is so pervasive as to be a sort of children's propaganda entertainmen My disappointment with the children's classics with the exception of Pinocchio has continued with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. It is so pervasive as to be a sort of children's propaganda entertainment, indoctrinating our children into the wickedness of ugly witches, the goodness of pretty witches, the innocence of naive young girls, the importance of home, and the need to accept that who we are and how we are is just good enough.
Not all of these indoctrinations are necessarily bad; in fact, some of them can be quite beneficial given the right circumstances, but in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz the presentation of these ideas is always coupled with a quite frightening lack of thought. None of the characters ask questions They accept things as they are, blindly agree with whatever they are told, make snap judgments about the good or evil of whomever they meet and act accordingly, and their answer to every antagonistic situation is to kill.

Dorothy kills, the Lion kills, the Tin Woodman kills, even the Scarecrow kills, and there is never a hint of regret or guilt from any of them -- even mister big heart in the hollow body. They want what they want, and if they have to kill to get it then so be it. I have been reading some Wonderful Wizard of Oz criticism as I've been reading the book, and many critics see Baum's opening book as a political and social satire. I tried hard to see it, I wanted to see it, but what I saw was a book that sells familiar myths to people who want the familiar.
It is a myth of "goodness," a myth of class distinction, a myth of meritocracy, a myth of "evil," and worst of all a myth of benevolent and righteous violence. Yet, for all its problems, it is compellingly fun to read, especially if you have occasion to read it out loud to your children and discuss the behaviour of the characters. Even if your children are young mine are both five , they should leave The Wonderful Wizard of Oz with a touch more self-awareness and a healthier view of the big entertainment versions of Baum's story.
And there is, for me, one truly redeeming quality in this classic: I appreciate the genius of Gregory Maguire 's Wicked all the more.
