Other Books in Series
This is book number 2 in the Whatever After: Special Edition series.
Follow the yellow brick road . . .
I'm with my best friends Robin and Frankie (and my sometimes friend, Penny) when a TORNADO scoops us up and whisks us away. As soon as we land, I can tell we're not in Smithville anymore -- we've been transported into The Wonderful Wizard of Oz!
We're excited to meet Dorothy and Toto . . . but the story isn't going as planned. The Wicked Witch of the East locks us in her dungeon, so we have no way of getting the magic slippers that will take Dorothy home. Plus, the Emerald City is under attack, and the Wizard himself may be in danger!
Now we have to:
- Befriend the Lion, the Tin Man, and the Scarecrow
- Flee the flying monkeys
- Learn to steer a hot-air balloon
- Find the courage, heart, and smarts to save the day
. . . or we'll never escape -- and everyone knows there's no place like home!
This edition is extra-magical, featuring puzzles, games, and a note from the author.

This book is an ultimate story-time favorite of mine. The book starts innocently enough when on the first page- a dragon egg begins to hatch! But be careful- this is one ticklish dragon! And dragons sneeze fire when tickled! Suddenly, the book is engulfed in adorable, yet ferocious, flame as readers must join together in helping put the flames out. Each page turn and colorful illustration presents the reader with an opportunity to participate and laugh along with this fantastic and delightful book! The board book version is perfect for toddlers but the hardcover version is great for sharing. -Reviewed by Maddi
