Elle échoue sur les mystérieuses rives du pays d'Ev où elle fera la connaissance de Tik-Tok, le sympathique Homme mécanique, mais aussi celle des Nomes, une tribu d'êtres disgracieux qui lui donneront bien du fil à retordre.

    Dans Dorothy et le Magicien au Pays d'Oz, un tremblement de terre empêche Dorothy d'arriver à destination et la précipite dans l'étrange contrée des Mangaboos- celle des hommes-légumes !

  • Dorothy and her dog Toto are carried away from Kansas by a cyclone and transported to the wonderful world of Oz. She meets three companions - Scarecrow, Tin Woodman and Cowardly Lion - and the three journey to the Emerald City of Oz to ask the Wizard of Oz to give them their heart's desires, which in Dorothy's case is to return home to Kansas.

  • Le Magicien d'Oz raconte l'histoire de Dorothy, une petite fille qui vit au Kansas chez son oncle et sa tante. Emportée par un cyclone avec son chien Toto, elle se retrouve dans un étrange pays où, avec l'aide de compagnons un peu bizarres - un épouvantail, un homme en fer-blanc et un lion froussard -, elle va affronter non seulement une sorcière particulièrement cruelle, mais aussi des tigres, des singes volants, des loups affamés, une araignée géante.

    Le Merveilleux Pays d'Oz est la suite du Magicien d'Oz. Le lecteur y fait la rencontre de Tip, un jeune garçon contraint de servir la sorcière Mombi et qui finit par s'échapper avec Jack, un drôle de bonhomme en bois à tête de citrouille. Ensemble, ils vont s'aventurer dans une contrée merveilleuse et affronter de nombreuses épreuves.

    Tout le monde connaît Le Magicien d'Oz, d'abord par le roman de L. Frank Baum paru en 1900, puis par le film de Victor Fleming (1939). En revanche, on sait moins que Baum donna une suite aux aventures de Dorothy et de ses compagnons - et quelle suite ! Plus de dix volumes parus entre 1900 et 1919, dont nous commençons la publication inédite et intégrale, illustrée par Stéphane Levallois.

  • Dans La Route d'Oz, Dorothy, non loin de la ferme du Kansas d'oncle Henry et de tante Em, croise l'Homme Hirsute, un vagabond qui cherche son chemin. C'est le point de départ de tout un périple qui commence alors pour les deux compagnons. En cours de route, ils rencontreront un petit garçon perdu, Bouton-Vif, et Polychrome, la Fille de l'Arc-en-ciel. Ils visiteront Goupilville et Âneville et feront la connaissance du Musicot avant d'être capturés par la tribu cannibale des Janivores. Mais ils parviendront à s'échapper et traverseront le désert mortel qui les sépare du Pays d'Oz où Dorothy retrouvera nombre de ses anciens compagnons, dont le Bûcheron de Fer-Blanc, Tiktok, Billina, le Magicien et l'Épouvantail, et c'est tous ensemble qu'ils poursuivront leur voyage...


    Dans La Cité d'Émeraude, on retrouve le roi des Nomes, qui n'a pas oublié comment Dorothy et Ozma se sont emparées de sa ceinture magique et qui prépare sa vengeance : faire creuser un tunnel pour permettre à son armée d'envahir la Cité d'Émeraude tandis que son général, Guph, rend visite aux souverains voisins afin de recruter des alliés, les Bizarros, les Growleywogs et les puissants Phanfasmes. Pendant ce temps, Dorothy invite tante Em et oncle Henry à venir vivre au Pays d'Oz avec elle. En le traversant en compagnie du Magicien, ils feront la connaissance d'étranges personnages...

A combination of enchanting fantasy and piercing social commentary, this remarkable story has entertained and beguiled readers of all ages since it was first published in 1900. Ray Bradbury writes in his Introduction, "Both [Baum and Shakespeare] lived inside their heads with a mind gone wild with wanting, wishing, hoping, shaping, dreaming," and it is this same hunger that makes all of us continue to seek out the story of Oz--and be nourished by it.
    This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the text of the definitive first edition and includes the New York Times review of that edition as well as the original Preface by the author.

  • An irresistible new collectible hardcover in the beloved series of six Penguin Christmas Classics
    L. Frank Baum’s The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus was first published in 1902, two years after his Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Drawing on the attributes of Santa Claus from Clement Moore’s 1822 poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” (“The Night Before Christmas”), Baum chronicles Santa’s life from his childhood in an enchanted forest--the same forest that is the source of all magic in the land of Oz--to his destiny of sharing gifts and spreading love to his fellow man. Along the way we witness him making his first toys, learn the origins of the Christmas tree and Christmas stockings, and discover the stories behind many Christmas secrets, like why Santa slides down chimneys, how he picks his reindeer, and how he delivers all his toys in one night. Later adapted into multiple animated films, and published here with the original illustrations from the first edition, The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus evinces the charm, warmth, and fantasy that made L. Frank Baum’s Oz stories American classics.

    Give the gift of literature this Christmas.
    Penguin Christmas Classics honor the power of literature to keep on giving through the ages. The six volumes in the series are not only our most beloved Christmas tales, they also have given us much of what we love about the holiday itself. A Christmas Carol revived in Victorian England such Christmas hallmarks as the Christmas tree, holiday cards, and caroling. The Yuletide yarns of Anthony Trollope popularized throughout the British Empire and around the world the trappings of Christmas in London. The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus created the origin story for the presiding spirit of Christmas as we know it. The holiday tales of Louisa May Alcott shaped the ideal of an American Christmas. The Night Before Christmas brought forth some of our earliest Christmas traditions as passed down through folk tales. And The Nutcracker inspired the most famous ballet in history, one seen by millions in the twilight of every year.
    Beautifully designed--with foil-stamped jackets, decorative endpapers, and nameplates for personalization--and printed in a small trim size that makes them perfect stocking stuffers, Penguin Christmas Classics embody the spirit of giving that is at the heart of our most time-honored stories about the holiday.
