The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

L. Frank Baum, read by Tavia Gilbert. Tantor Media, unabridged, four CDs, 4 hrs., $17.99 ISBN 978-1-4526-1027-6
Baum’s classic comes to life in this winning audio edition. When a cyclone whisks Dorothy Gale to the Land of Oz, her only hope of returning to Kansas is to find the Wizard, who lives in the heart of the Emerald City. Following the Yellow Brick Road, Dorothy encounters friends and foes—e.g., the endearing Scarecrow and the malevolent Wicked Witch of the West—that help and hinder her journey. Tavia Gilbert’s whimsical narration will appeal to listeners young and old. Additionally, the distinct voices she creates for each character make for a delightful listening experience. Those only familiar with the film adaptation will be pleasantly surprised by the original story and Gilbert’s fantastic narration. Ages 10–up. (Oct.)
