Happy Birthday, L. Frank Baum!

That magical tale about Dorothy, her shoes, the land of Oz.
The witches too! I really really want to see the musical sometime, M says it’s reputed to be brilliant.
I read this novel when I was but a wide eyed child. And I have always loved witches since! I know, not a very childlike thing, but then, I was never a ‘regular’ predictable child.
We digress… a beautiful tale that I feel should be read out to children between the age of 7 and 10.

What do you think? Do you recommend any of his other books?
