Artist Statement

"The Land of Oz is a brightly colored place, divided into five regions: the munchkins (blue), Quadlings (red), Winkies (Yellow), Gillikans (purple) and the Emerald City (green). Underlying this is late 19th century Kansas-- only briefly a setting but very much a presence throughout the book. For this cover, I\'ve tried to bring the two locations together, tracing both Dorothy\'s journey (from Munchkin Country to the Emerald City to the Winkies to the Quadlings) in Oz, and home, the beginning and the end.
