You''ve never seen THE WIZARD OF OZ like this! Published in 2000 to celebrate the book''s centennial, THE ANNOTATED WIZARD OF OZ is a masterful work, with the original text and illustrations augmented with an introduction of over 100 pages and extensive footnotes detailing the story''s minutiae. Cross-references to the other Oz books and the 1939 MGM film, facts and figures about the author''s life and times, in-jokes, info on the illustrator and his works, and obscure (and not-so-obscure) references abound. Knowing the details only adds to the reader''s enjoyment and understanding of this classic children''s book.
