This is a new illustrated edition of one of the world's most beloved cult/children's tales. Michael Sieben's unique style and imaginative art brings new life to an old favorite that will appeal to "Oz" fanatics both young and old around the world. Its publication will leverage the promotion and marketing of the film, "Oz, the Great and Powerful". In the film, James Franco plays Oz; Michelle Williams, Glinda, the Good Witch; Rachel Weisz, Evanora, the Wicked Witch of the East; and Mila Kunis, the Wicked Witch of the West. Zac Braff also stars as Frank - but what that role is exactly remains to be seen. The "Wonderful Wizard of Oz" is the newest entry into Harper Design's program of classic works illustrated anew. We have taken many much-beloved classic works of fiction and created new edition illustrated by a well-known artist within a graphically compelling, affordable hardcover format. We have published all of these books in sync with the release of major Hollywood films in order to take full advantage of the media buzz.
