    In L Frank Baum s book The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy s slippers were silver The color changed to ruby because silver did not show up well in the black and white movie.Schneider brings us Dorothy s silver shoes and takes us on some great and mysterious adventures.

    Having read a good number of the Oz books when I was in junior high, I was naturally curious about this book It is an interesting take on the whole Oz story It wasn t completely horrible, but I feel that it could have been better The premise was good, but the writing needed work.

    A must read for all diehard hardcore fan of Oz, Oz books, and the Oz mythology in general I enjoyed this book It captured the innocent, whimsical spirit of the original Baum books, and makes a fine entry into the post Baum retelling of Oz Looking forward to the sequel.
