The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was written in 1900 by L. Frank Baum. Many other Oz books followed, as well as the famous 1939 movie. Not until now, however, does Toto tell the story, as he remembers it. In Toto's Tale, we read his version of the beloved adventures. Toto tells how he first found Dorothy when she arrived in Kansas on an orphan train and how they were both adopted by Aunt Em and Uncle Henry. In the end, he says, the silver shoes (not ruby slippers as in the movie) weren't lost in the desert, but put to good use.

Praise For…

"This is an utterly charming account of the famous Oz adventure... told from the point of view of the little dog. He makes for a thoroughly delightful narrator, offering a unique perspective, complete with astute canine observations like smells and tastes. The narrative feels rich and textured with the emphasis on these often-neglected senses."

-- Laura Resau, award winning middle grade and YA author.
