Comments:
It is in this book that Oz is "discovered." A little Kansas girl--Dorothy Gale--is carried in her house to Oz when a cyclone whisks it through the sky. As the house lands in the Munchkin Country (one of the four great countries of Oz) it destroys a wicked witch and sends Dorothy off on her first adventure in Oz. She finds the Scarecrow, meets the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion, melts a second wicked witch with a pail of water and finds her way home. Since this book appeared a century ago, we have learned many marvelous things about the Land of Oz. (published May 15, 1900)
