I read this one back in third grade and was shocked, SHOCKED, to see how different it was from the movie. So many wonderful little tidbits that got cut out, like the backstory for all the characters Dorothy meets in Oz. I also loved how it was made very clear that this was a REAL adventure, and not a strange hallucination from getting clonked on the head. If you liked the book "Wicked", then the original Oz books should be a requirement.
