When I was a kid I would spend hours in the Children’s Room at the big downtown branch of the Cleveland Public Library. I can still remember exactly where my favorite books were. Ramona Quimby books were halfway down on the right side, at the eye level of a six-year-old. Half Magic and other books by Edward Eager were on the left and required a step stool. One of my favorite series was halfway down the main section, in a middle cut-through on a small shelf connecting two magazine stands. The books of that series took up an entire row of that bookshelf and were full of incredible adventures in a strange land with brave characters and fantastic people, plus animals who could speak and sometimes fly! They were the Wizard of Oz books by Frank L. Baum.
Given my love for the Wizard of Oz, it’s no wonder I’m excited about the new movie coming out today. To celebrate, I found seven adorable adoptable pets who are already celebrating. Take a look below. And remember, there’s no place like home so help them find one by sharing this today!
