In My Mailbox: The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz illustrated by Maraja

Oh My! A very special package that I have been awaiting eagerly, finally arrived! I saw this book a while ago here, and within hours I was scouring the internet to find a copy. I managed to find one on ebay, and at a reasonable price too! Upon opening the book, I was somewhat disappointed, as it was kind of dirty (nothing I couldn't clean) AND one of the pages was ripped (grrr. Again fixable, yet irritating). 

But all in all, I am extremely happy with my purchase. This book is SUCH a gem. I could have scanned the whole book, because it really is that amazing, but I got tired so I tried to pick my favorites to share with you (it was very hard, trust me). 

The chapter titles are all incredible.

Isn't Dorothy adorable?
Look at that type! 
Awww, don't you just want to give him a hug? 

More goodies from this book tomorrow!


  1. That is a truly sad lion. I DO want to hug him!!!!

    I want to play and create and do stuff with you, lady!

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE the ribbon type - its fantastic.
