So below is the review I left for this audio book. This summer I listened to several books with my 5 year-old daughter, EK. She really enjoyed this one. Shortly after we listened to it we watched the movie as a family and she enjoyed that as well.
If you could sum up The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in three words, what would they be?
What a wonderful story! Most people with a casual or nostalgic interest in The Wizard of Oz will be delightfully surprised to find out the book is wonderful but different than the movie. Many things in the movie musical mirror the book quite closely but there is much in the book that is not in the movie. So my three words are Wonderful, Surprised, and Delightful!
What I enjoyed most about listening to this book was re-discovering Oz in all its wonder. And finding out there is more to the Land of Oz than I had ever thought or expected.
What does Anne Hathaway bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Anne Hathaway does an outstanding job of performing this book. There are many different types of characters in this book, from mice to flying monkeys, she portrays each character with a unique voice that if you just read the book, instead of listening, would be lost.
