Review:
This audio adventure took me back to the radio days of my childhood when music, voice and special sound effects were the tools listeners used to paint their own story pictures. Here, in the abridged version of Dorothy's story, the eighteen chapters are dramatically and vividly delivered giving the option of listening in one sitting (80 minutes) or in several separate chapter segments. Even families already familiar with the story can once again become engrossed in the adventure.
