The Wizard of Oz by Victor Fleming( visu )
164 editions published between 1939 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 6,246 libraries worldwide
Dorothy Gale lives with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry. She has a pet dog named Toto. When Miss Gulch takes Toto away, Toto escapes and runs back to Dorothy. Soon, she runs away from home, and runs into the fake psychic, Professor Marvel. He tells Dorothy that her Auntie Em is sick, so Dorothy and Toto run back home, but a tornado comes and takes Dorothy and Toto to Oz, a place somewhere over the rainbow. She lands in Munchkinland. Her house accidentally lands on the Wicked Witch of the West's sister and Dorothy magically inherits the pair of ruby slippers that were on her feet. Glinda, the Good Witch of the North tells Dorothy to follow the Yellow Brick Road to see the Wizard so she can get back home. Along the way, she befriends Scarecrow, Tinman, and Lion. They are also seeking help from the Wizard because the Scarecrow needs a brain, Tinman needs a heart, and Lion needs courage
The wizard of Oz : the screenplay by Noel Langley( Book )
31 editions published between 1938 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 610 libraries worldwide
Dorothy Gale (Garland) plans to run away from her unhappy Kansas farm when she is whisked away in a swirling tornado with her dog Toto and arrives in the fantasy-land of Oz. Dorothy's entrance into the land of Oz remains one of screen history's most memorable moments as the black and white scene gives way to glowing colour photography. Munchkinland is a dream-come true world of enchanted forests, dancing scarecrows, and singing lions. Glinda, the Good Witch of the North tells her to find the Wizard of Oz who can bring her home - to get there she must follow the famous yellow brick road. On the journey she meets the scarecrow, the tin man and the lion (emblematic of the lessons of wisdom, love, devotion and bravery). The Wicked Witch of the West wants Dorothy's red shoes, which she was given as a reward for saving the Munchkins. At the end of the day Dorothy realizes that happiness was in her own back-yard all the time
