The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz by W.W. Denslow – Pomegranate – 300 pieces

Pomegranate puzzles have always been, for me, excellent quality. You can even feel the quality when you pick up one of their boxes – it feels luxurious and sturdy. I love their puzzles, and they have a catalog of images that aren’t just the usual kitty cat pictures, Christmas images, landscapes, and cottages. They’ve got some unique and fun to assemble images and I love their puzzles!

I wish I could tell you about this assembly, but I honestly don’t remember assembling any of these puzzles from last August. Steel yourselves for the next few puzzles, because they will pretty much be me saying the same thing – I don’t remember. I can tell you about the quality of the brands, and what the quality looks like from the pictures, but that’s about it. My apologies.

This is not what Dorothy looks like to a troglodyte like myself who has only seen the movie and has never read the books. I’m looking for a teenager in a gingham dress. This girl looks about 6 or 7 years old! How old is Dorothy in the books? Is there someone out there more well read than me who could let us know?

And Glinda the good witch here is supposed to be much younger looking and in a pink, sparkly dress! What is happening?!

  1. From Wikipedia: “Baum never states Dorothy’s age, but he does state in The Lost Princess of Oz that she is a year younger than Betsy Bobbin and a year older than Trot, whose age was specified as 10 in Ruth Plumly Thompson’s The Giant Horse of Oz, putting her at age 11 by the time she comes to live in Oz.” The Lost Princess of Oz is the 11th book in the series, so she could have been quite young in the first. On the other hand, she didn’t age when she was in Oz, so maybe she was about 10 in the first book. Not a teenager, though.
