Wicked is the first in a series from Maguire that examines the events of the beloved classic children’s book The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum from other perspectives. The reader follows the main character Elphaba from the cradle on, examining how and why she became the notorious Wicked Witch of the West. If you enjoy the novel or movie The Wizard of Oz, appreciate retellings, and enjoy character driven stories you might find a hidden (emerald) gem with Wicked.
