Oz in Jeopardy!

Sorry for the delay on this one, folks, but it's been a busy week here. This clue comes from way back on the first of the month, and it was the first game of this year's College Tournament. In the category Children's Books (so no surprise there) was this $1000 clue:

Weston, a freshman at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, rang in and correctly responded with, "What is The Wizard of Oz?" And he went on to easily win the game, and moved on to the semifinals, which start tonight.

(There was another clue in the final preliminary game about cairn terriers, but since Toto wasn't mentioned, I decided not to put it up here.)

Is there no quibbling over the actual title being, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz"?

As it's been published under the titles The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Wizard of Oz, and even The New Wizard of Oz, no, no quibbling. Only the hardest of hardcore Oz pedants insist that the book always be called The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
