Dorothy and Toto’s incredible journey home never grows old. But where, exactly, is home? In The Wondrous Wizdom of Oz: A Spiritual Odyssey, Christine Whitehead teaches us that our own yellow brick road can lead us home to a world of discovery, joy, and personal fulfillment. Whitehead artfully balances the story of Dorothy and her friends with tidbits of wisdom that teach us about life, ourselves, and the choices we make. She adds quotes from fellow travelers—including Rosa Parks, Kahlil Gibran, Pink Floyd, and Elton John; Jesus Christ, Anne Frank, Tom Hanks, and Oprah Winfrey—and reminds us of the kindred spirits who walk with us.The Wondrous Wizdom of Oz is a chance to reminisce about the magical story we all know. It’s a chance to learn from these colorful, endearing characters and a chance to journey across the rainbow, reveal our wizard within, and discover where we belong. “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home.”

Praise for The Wondrous Wizdom of Oz

“Author Christine Whitehead draws upon the story and images of Frank L. Baum’s classicWizard of Oz books to illustrate bits of wisdom and insights regarding life and the choices we make in The Wondrous Wizdom Of Oz: A Spiritual Odyssey. Using the examples of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, even the Munchkins, principles and precepts are laid out and linked to words of wisdom and observation from the likes of Jesus, Rosa Parks, Kahlil Gibran, Ann Frank, and entertainers Pink Floyd, Elton John, Tom Hanks, and Oprah Winfrey. The Wondrous Wizdom Of Oz is a welcome addition to any personal self-help, self-improvement reading list.”

-The Midwest Book Review 


“Christine Whitehead has written a book that is deeply spiritual and is warm, funny and accessible. Many people love the movie The Wizard of Oz but may not have wondered if there is a deeper meaning to the story. Reading this book brings together the familiar with the yet undiscovered. I highly recommend this book.”
