本书以虚构的奥芝国为背景,讲述美国堪萨斯州的小姑娘多萝西被龙卷风卷到了一个叫孟奇金的地方,好女巫指点她到翡翠城去找奥芝国大术士帮忙送她回家。路上,她先后遇到了稻草人,铁皮樵夫与小胆狮。他们结伴而行,克服了一个个困难,终于来到了翡翠城。但等待他们的又是想不到的麻烦……

One of the true classics of American literature, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over four generations. Originally published in 1900, it was the first truly American fairy tale, as Baum crafted a wonderful out of such familiar items as a cornfield scarecrow, a mechanical woodman, and a humbug wizard who used old-fashioned hokum to express that universal theme, "There's no place like home."

Follow the adventures of young Dorothy Gale and her dog, Toto, as their Kansas house is swept away by a cyclone and they find themselves in a strange land called Oz. Here she meets the Munchkins and joins the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion on an unforgettable journey to the Emerald City, where lives the all-powered Wizard of Oz.
