Everything Oz

Everything Oz

The cover for Everything Oz, the Wizards Book of Makes and Bakes, was created using hand painted & textured paper, collaged in layers. It shows Dorothy and Toto walking through the poppy field, on their way to the Emerald City. Little do they know the evil winged monkeys are watching and waiting for them! The left-hand side of the page and the back of the book, shows an earlier part of the book when Dorothys house has been picked up by the cyclone, she flies over the Tin Woodsman, who has rusted still. This book was written by Hannah Read-Baldrey and Christine Leech.
