French illustrator Coudray creates a bright, carnival-like mood for this picture book adaptation of L. Frank Baum-s first Oz story, part of the My First Classics series. Filippini-s retelling moves briskly through the story, including elements from Baum-s original (such as a run-in with the bear/tiger hybrid Kalidahs) that will be new to readers who only know the 1939 film. Coudray doesn-t let the story-s darker moments get too scary-the first time readers see the Wicked Witch of the West she-s already melting, -like sugar in a cup of hot milk,- thanks to Dorothy-and her playful characterizations contribute to the upbeat, magical atmosphere: her Scarecrow resembles a friendly, scruffy clown, while the Tin Woodman-s limbs incorporate cans of salmon, corn, and chile con carne. A lively and visually distinctive return to Oz. Ages 5-7. (Aug.)
