In today’s copy of The Times, readers will get to enjoy the story behind the story of Michael’s new children’s book, Toto: The Dog-Gone Amazing Story of The Wizard of Oz.

I felt Toto played little or no real part in the original story“, wrote Michael, describing how he embraces the challenge of rediscovering the magic of story which has stood the test of time.

“I simply want to tell them again for the children of today, so that thousands more children will come to love them as much as I do.”
