Generations In Oz
Once there was a young girl named Kathy. A gentle man wrote a book and invited her to escape to another land -- one called Oz. Sometimes she felt very alone and this was a place where she could have friends and adventures.
It was a beautiful world full of royalty ...
She marked each book as her own and her family helped her collect the books she loved ...
...even passing on their treasured volumes.
Her voyages to this land lasted for many years, but eventually she grew up and passed the books on to her daughter, Kristen.
The young girl wanted to be beautiful like Ozma ...
and have her own robot like Tik-Tok.
