Oh if I close my eyes and wish real hard . . .

I could go here . . . A Likely Story Bookstore in Sykesville, Md. for this . . Book Release Party and Wizard of Oz Costume Contest on Sat. Nov. 20th 2-4
But I already got the book because Dorothy at Pump Up Your Book sent me one !And I don't have a costume!

The trailer was just too cute!

From the back of the book:

Everyone knows how Dorothy and Toto save Oz from the Wicked Witch of West...or do they?
How will Dorothy survive in a land filled with haunted bags of straw, hollow metal menand giant smelly cats?How will she fight off killer bees, mad wolves and really annoying monkeys?How will she defeat a witch with mind controland an all-seeing eye?And how will Dorothy ever find the way home?
The simple truth is that she won’t, at least not alone. Of course, she’s not alone –she has Toto, her best friend.That is, Toto used to be her best friend. But in Oz, Dorothy spends more time talking to a cat than to her. And Toto finds new friends, too. Maybe, he should just bring his wolf friends back to Kansas instead…

. . . Would any self-respecting dog allow himself to be carried in a basket?

Absolutely, as long as Dorothy put food in it first!

This is really a cute book. It is a childrens book and probably a few adults would enjoy it. It is on my list to buy for my daughter in law to read to the grand kids. I know they would enjoy it!

It's on sale right now at Amazon. If your in Maryland this week stop by A Likely Story and meet the authors. I enjoyed reading about them almost as the book.

  1. Thanks for your kind words! We wish you could have been at the party, too! We didn't have many costumes but we had many kids participate in our art contest and some of the entries are posted at the bookstore. And we're glad you find us almost as interesting as the book!
