Staff Reviews


"This book is really beautiful. It has a nice weight when you hold it in the palm of your hand and the cover beneath the jacket is embossed with an illustration. The glossy pages give it the feel of a collector’s item. And then there’s L. Frank Baum’s story on top of Sieben's incredible illustration. In short, totally in love with this book.">
