Isn't it grand how disney can take a good welll thought out story, one with meaning and depth and turn it into something that means nothing? and there are so many people to whom this is normal?
Anyways, this book is amazing, as are all of the other books in the series (my mom is an Oz fanatic, I grew up listening to them for bed time stories). I thik thathe creats a wonderful world, teaching children as he goes. They are much better than Harry Potter, but on the same type of lines.
