Hallmark The Wit and Wizdom of The Wizard of Oz

The Wit and Wizdom of The Wizard of Oz
By Emily Osborn
Hardcover Hallmark Gift Book
My scanner did not pick up  the red foiled slippers on the cover. I'm a tad disappointed this book didn't have more original art and I was expecting more witticisms along the line of the Everything I Needed to Know I Learned From the Wizard of Oz poster that was released in the 90s.  Would have helped had I read the text on the back.  The book is mostly colored with MGM film imagery and a few uncommon newer illustrations.  There's one vintage illustration in the back of the book that I immediately fell in love with.  But all in all a cute little book for Wizard of Oz lovers.  Look wherever your local Hallmark store stocks their gift books.
