  • "True courage is in facing danger when you are afraid..." Dorothy is in a bit of a pickle. Her house has been swept away in a vicious tornado with just herself and her dog inside, and when she walks out the front door again, she finds that she is not in Kansas anymore. She is in the mysterious lands of Oz. Along with her new friends, a scarecrow, a tin man, and a lion, she sets out to find the Wizard, who is said to know how to get her home. But the Wicked Witch of the West has other plans for her. Inspired in part by 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', `The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' (1900) is one of the most beloved children's books of all time. It is highly associated with the iconic 1939 movie adaptation staring Judy Garland in which she sings the Oscar-winning song "Over the Rainbow".

  • Pour la première fois en français, l'intégrale en six tomes du Cycle d'Oz, l'œuvre culte de L. Frank Baum.
    Le Magicien d'Oz raconte l'histoire de Dorothy, une petite fille qui vit au Kansas chez son oncle et sa tante. Emportée par un cyclone avec son chien Toto, elle se retrouve dans un étrange pays où, avec l'aide de compagnons un peu bizarres – un épouvantail, un homme en fer-blanc et un lion froussard –, elle va affronter non seulement une sorcière particulièrement cruelle, mais aussi des tigres, des singes volants, des loups affamés, une araignée géante...
    Le Merveilleux Pays d'Oz est la suite du Magicien d'Oz. Le lecteur y fait la rencontre de Tip, un jeune garçon contraint de servir la sorcière Mombi et qui finit par s'échapper avec Jack, un drôle de bonhomme en bois à tête de citrouille. Ensemble, ils vont s'aventurer dans une contrée merveilleuse et affronter de nombreuses épreuves.

Plus de dix volumes parus entre 1900 et 1919, dont nous commençons la publication inédite et intégrale, illustrée par Stéphane Levallois.

    The Oz books form a book series that begins with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900) and relate the fictional history of the Land of Oz. Oz was created by author L. Frank Baum, who went on to create the illusion that characters such as Dorothy and Princess Ozma relayed their adventures in Oz to Baum themselves, by means of wireless telegraph.
    This ebook presents all the Wizard of Oz novels written by Lyman Frank Baum. Later Wizard of Oz books written by Ruth Plumly Thompson and other authors, as well as comic strips, are not included in this collection.
    Lyman Frank Baum (May 15, 1856 - May 6, 1919) was an American author of children's books, best known for writing The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. His works anticipated such century-later commonplaces as television, augmented reality, laptop computers (The Master Key), wireless telephones (Tik-Tok of Oz), women in high risk, action-heavy occupations (Mary Louise in the Country), and the ubiquity of advertising on clothing (Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work).

  • "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz," also known simply as "The Wizard of Oz" is a famous children's novel by Frank L. Baum. Written at the start of the 20th century, it is one of the most famous fantasy stories to date, now brought to life by B. J. Harrison.
    Dorothy is a young girl living peacefully on a Kansas prairie, when a cyclone swoops her and her dog Toto into the magical Land of Oz. Is there a way for them to get back home from this new and strange place, where dangers and astonishing creatures await? The novel has been adapted into the beloved film version The Wizard of Oz (1939) starring Judy Garland.

    B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.

    Lyman Frank Baum (1856-1919), aka L. Frank Baum, was an American author, poet and scriptwriter. Primarily known for his children's books, he is most famous for the novel "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" and its sequels. His stories feature adventure and fantasy, and are a reinvention of familiar fairy tales. Baum's works have been featured on stage and films, most famously in the iconic Oscar-winning film adaptation The Wizard of Oz (1939), based on Baum's novel of the same name, starring Judy Garland.

  • "There is no doubt they intend to kill us as dead as possible in a short time," said the Wizard.
    "As dead as poss'ble would be pretty dead, wouldn't it?" asked Dorothy." During an earthquake in California Dorothy and her friends are swallowed up by cracks in the earth and find themselves in a whole new land - the Land of Mangaboos. The Mangaboos are a vegetable people, and they accuse Dorothy and her friends of causing the earthquake and sentence them to death. The 1939 movie, `The Wizard of Oz' starring Judy Garland, perfectly told the story of a little girl's first adventure, but the story of Oz and Dorothy far from ended then. With his trademark inventions on display, author L. Frank Baum delivers another imaginative and delightful book in the Oz series, though many will agree that this fourth one is darker and more troubling than its predecessors.

  • Three young girls wander into an enchanted forest at meet a fairy woman, who is bored with her perfect, immortal life. She convinces them to turn her into a human and decides to become a prince because boys have more fun. His/her new existence exploring the surrounding kingdoms is fast and adventurous from the get-go. What unfolds in an interesting story of problems solved by a woman's mind in the luxury of a man's body. `The Enchanted Island of Yew` (1903) was written by L. Frank Baum, the author of `The Wonderful Wizard of Oz', but is separate from the Oz series. This story clearly comes from the same imagination, however, with the added bonus of some interesting gender-bender elements.

  • Whatever happened in the lands of Oz after Dorothy left? In this sequel to the `The Wonderful Wizard of Oz', we meet a young boy named Tip, who, unlike Dorothy, has grown up in this magical place. He is under the care (though that is a relative term) of the witch Mombi, but escapes her evil clutches just in time before she turns him in to a statue. Traveling through Oz, Tip meets a bunch of whimsical creatures (some of whom we know already) who join him on an adventurous journey that will conclude in satisfying ways no one will see coming. Loved even more, by many, than its predecessor, `The Marvelous Land of Oz' (1904) has been adapted into a stage play and in comic book form by Marvel several times.

  • "Roads," observed the shaggy man, "don't go anywhere. They stay in one place, so folks can walk on them." A shaggy-looking man, imaginatively called Shaggy Man, asks Dorothy for directions to Butterfield, but the two of them end up getting lost on their way and decide to proceed to Oz instead. For once not chased by danger, they arrive just in time for Princess Ozma's birthday party where a great assortment of colourful characters awaits. The 1939 movie, `The Wizard of Oz' starring Judy Garland, perfectly told the story of a little girl's first adventure, but the story did not end then. `The Road to Oz' (1909), L. Frank Baum's fifth book in the series, celebrates the lands of Oz in the best way possible.

  • Good news for those who found themselves missing the original heroine of Oz in the second book because in `Ozma of Oz' (1907), Dorothy is back! Traveling to Australia with her uncle, Dorothy is once again caught up in a natural disaster - a huge storm at sea that separates her from her uncle. She washes ashore in the land of Ev, a fairyland that has recently lost its royal family, and Dorothy is once more entangled in the conflicts of a foreign place. Not everything is new however, as Dorothy unites with old friends and places. Along with the previous novel in the Oz series, `Ozma of Oz' was adapted into a movie, `Return to Oz' in 1985, featuring Fairuza Balk as Dorothy.
