...and saw how simple the soul behind them was, and that the little girl did not know of the wonderful power the Silver Shoes gave her. So, the Wicked Witch laughed to herself…” Now, which adult would not be tempted to read more? Just like many others, I also hovered over fairyland till the tornado carried me away with Dorothy, I wore silver shoes, got kissed by a good Witch, met a scarecrow who wanted brains, befriended a tin woodman who sought a heart, rode on a cowardly lion who wished for courage, drank the powerful smell of the poppies, flew with the winged monkeys, wore green spectacles, met the Witch of the North, vanquished the Wicked Witch of the West and came back home, refreshed and happy…. After all, that’s what I believe a good book should do- leave you feeling happy, refreshed and rejuvenated. And a book like the Wonderful Wizard of Oz couldn't but bring a smile on your face! If you haven’t yet read it, go pick it up. If you have read it before, pick it up again! Short, sweet and simple- a perfect book for a lazy afternoon- the ideal pastures for the mind to ramble into.
