the heavily abridged Little Golden Book of Road, and the even more heavily abridged pop-up book of Wizard were far more faithful to both the letter and the spirit of the original material than any Oz movie I've seen.
And thank the Wizard for that being the case. I'm thrilled to have gotten a fun, entertaining (though flawed) interpretation of Oz
on film. It's great too see it translated from page to screen. For the the strictest, purest, most faithful experience of Baum's Oz
... best to read it.
