The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has arrived, now in an exciting new, high-octane graphic novel rendition! Filled with kid-grabbing details, L. Frank Baum's classic fantasy looks fabulous in this vivid retelling. Thanks to the brilliant, action-packed color, the Yellow Brick Road has never seemed brighter, the Wicked Witch more evil, or the Land of Oz more magical. It's ideal for every fan of the book, the much-loved movie, or the graphic novels. This is the freshest, hippest approach to classic literature yet.
L. Frank Baum (1856-1919) is one of the preeminent figures in the history of American children's fiction and authored nearly 60 works for children by the end of his career. He is most famous for his creation of the delightful, magical, and not just a little bit frightening land of Oz and the 14 bestselling books about it, from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900) to Glinda of Oz (1920).
Former Marvel comic artist Ben Caldwell's cartooning books have helped establish him as a force in the wide world of comics and graphic novels. Ben is a big name in the comics and cartooning world, appearing at Comic-Con conventions and gathering a large fan base. He lives in Wyomissing, PA with his wife and twin daughters.
How fantastically fun! Ben Caldwell has managed to take this wonderful "old" classic and make it new again in a way that is appealing to an entirely new generation. I love that! I think holding onto the classics is so important and a great way to do that is to find a way of retelling that captures a new audience. Ben Caldwell does this with flair. The illustrations are bright, colorful and fun and the print is large enough to read without squinting (thank you Mr. Caldwell for that!!). This book is a treasure for die hard Wizard of Oz fans as well as the little ones in our life who we want to introduce to this classic in a new and exciting way! I am a huge fan and am very interested to share the other All Action Classics picks with my boys! Be sure to pick up your copy today on Amazon....
