WHY WE RECOMMEND IT: a magical, inspirational story. Exciting dialog. A perfect text for reading aloud.
WHAT DO READERS NEED TO KNOW? They probably won't be able to read it aloud. The text is in Czech.
WHY WE LIKE THE ART: ever wonder what the Tin Woodman would look like if rendered by Paul Klee?
Or the Scarecrow?
Klee-like spot illustrations appear throughout the book.
