Summary

Dorothy and her little dog Toto befriend the Tinman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion as they travel down the yellow brick road to the City of Emeralds. Maureen Lipman cackles splendidly as the Wicked Witch of the West in this acclaimed BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of L. Frank Baum's famous and much-loved tale.

The best I've heard

A really amazing listen, with spot-on casting and superb voice-acting! The best dramatisation for children and adults I've heard from the BBC in a long time. No matter your age it's well worth a listen.

Good Classic

My 4 year old loves this audiobook. She plays it at night before she goes to sleep. The only thing I don't like about it, is it seems have many things going on at once. Other than that, it is a good dramatization of a classic.
