The Wizard of Oz by Victor Fleming( Visual )

13 editions published between 1936 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 2,629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dorothy è una ragazzina che vive in una fattoria del Kansas, insieme alla zia, allo zio e ai lavoranti del podere. E' particolarmente affezionata a Totò, un piccolo cane che ha morso accidentalmente una vicina di casa, vecchia megera proprietaria di gran parte delle terre vicine al podere. Visto che la vicina ha ottenuto un'ingiunzione per uccidere Totò, Dorothy scappa di casa con il cane. Grazie alla saggezza di un mago imbroglione, la ragazzina torna però indietro per non far preoccupare la zia. Tuttavia un terribile tifone sorprende Dorothy proprio quando entra in casa, lasciata vuota nel frattempo dagli zii per scampare alla furia del ciclone. L'uragano è talmente forte che solleva la casa e la fa cadere, parecchi minuti dopo e chilometri, in una valle incantata, fantastica, fiabesca, chiamata dai suoi strani abitanti il regno di Oz. Inseguita dalla cattiva strega dell'ovest (interpretata dalla stessa avida vicina di casa), Dorothy si dirige verso Smeralda, la città dove vive il grande mago di Oz, nella speranza che egli, con una sua magia, possa farla tornare in Kansas. Durante il viaggio incontra uno spaventapasseri senza cervello, un uomo di latta senza cuore, un leone senza coraggio. Tutti e tre i personaggi accettano l'invito della ragazzina a seguirla per andare dal mago e chiedergli rispettivamente un cervello, un cuore e un po' di coraggio. Dopo numerose peripezie, tra le quali l'uccisione della perfida strega dell'ovest, la compagnia riesce finalmente ad avere udienza dal mago, il quale è un impostore (lo stesso che aveva incontrato Dorothy in Kansas). Tuttavia basta un piccolo attestato, un orologio a forma di cuore ticchettante e una medaglia al valore per convincere i tre compagni di Dorothy di possedere le qualità tanto agognate. Per quanto riguarda il desiderio della bambina, la cosa è più complessa. Solo l'intervento della strega buona del nord permette di realizzarlo Dorothy, infatti, battendo tre volte i tacchi delle sue scarpe può tornare, per magia, a casa. Ma più che un viaggio è un risveglio: la ragazzina, colpita da un oggetto durante il tifone, aveva sognato tutta questa meravigliosa avventura
