When originally published The Wizard of Oz was the best-selling children's book for nearly two straight years. Baum went on to write thirteen more novels based on the places and people of the Land of Oz.
Other unique features include:
* Multi-touch interactivity throughout using a dynamic 3D physics engine to make it more fun and engaging.
* Twist and move 3D pop-up images.
* "Pinch" images to zoom in or expand images to the whole screen.
* “Pinch Flick” a unique new interface that allows you to make the image full screen by “flicking” the image with two fingers either larger or smaller. When you see the thumbnail view "flick" the image quickly with two fingers to expand it, or flick your fingers together to send it back to thumbnail view. Slowly move two fingers to zoom in/out on the image.
