fraud wizard; click heels.


Trivia question? Do you know what Dorothy's last name is? answer at end of post

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a children's book written L. Frank Baum and illustrated by W.W. Denslow. Most of us know the iconic movie, where Judy Garland sings 'Somewhere over the rainbow'

    Awesome review! I loved the "click heels" at the end. Nice trivia question, I would have never guessed that her last name was Gale.
