Comments:
In this must-have book for all fans of Oz big and small, artist and visionary Gabriel Gale brings to vivid life all the creatures from L. Frank Baum’s beloved series, from the iconic characters in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz to many others that are visualized here for the first time. Through Gabriel Gale’s spectacular illustrations, we meet every fantastical and wondrous character from the enchanted Land of Oz. In his original and precise yet beautiful style, Gale portrays each character in delightful detail, including some characters that are illustrated for the first time. On this journey through Oz, the fascinating Ozians are introduced by Dorothy and her friends, and include wicked witches and their armies, mythical beasts, elemental fairies, robots, insects, one-legged and two-sided people, and many more sky, land, sea, and underground creatures. Alongside Gale’s illustrations are select excerpts and drawings from the fourteen books in Baum’s Oz series. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was the best-selling American children’s book of the twentieth century, and the classic 1939 movie of this quintessential American fairy tale left a permanent mark on the hearts and imaginations of devoted fans throughout the world. This is the perfect book for anyone entranced by the everlasting magic of Oz.
