The Wizard of Oz:
“Adapted from the original text by L. Frank Baum. In these fully illustrated pages with a little text on it, Adélia Carvalho tells the story of Dorothy, the Tin Woodman who was looking for a heart, the lion who wanted to be brave and the scarecrow who wanted a heart. The book is suitable for reading aloud for children up to 6 years old or for autonomous reading from that age up to 10 years old. Gonçalo Viana’s illustrations show us the Wizard of Oz through very colorful geometric constructions, creating patterns that make this world real.”
