In 2000, a number of famous picture book illustrators paid tribute to a classic part of the children’s literature canon by creating a piece of artwork inspired by The Wizard of Oz. Images of this artwork and words from thirty authors and illustrators are compiled in a wonderful (and unfortunately out of print) collection, The Hundredth Anniversary Celebration, edited by Peter Glassman. Even while depicting familiar Dorothy and the gang, each artist retains his or her own style and trademark. Can you identify the artist behind each of these Wizard of Oz interpretations?
Bonus: Eric Carle’s contribution would be just too easy to identify because it features a Very recognizable friend. Can you guess what Wizard of Oz character The Very Hungry Caterpiller is dressed up as?
