The Oz books form a book series that begins with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and that relates the "history" of the Land of Oz. Oz was originally created by author L. Frank Baum, who went on to write fourteen Oz books. Although most of the Oz books are strictly adventures, Baum�as well as many later Oz authors�styled themselves as "Royal Historians" of Oz to emphasize that Oz is a genuine place. Later authors wrote 26 other "official" books after Baum's death. Many other authors have put their own twists on Oz, notably Gregory Maguire's revisionist Wicked. For more such books, please see List of Published Oz Apocrypha.

� Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Excellent value, but be warned that this compilation includes the text only... without the illustrations.

I can't say much about this collection of Baum's masterpieces. They are gems, each and every one of them. The ebook format is wonderful. Those of you, who have experience with ebooks, know how difficult an ebook can be, when the table of contents is not active. Rest assured, this is a good navigational ebook. Wonderful stories and a superb addition to my ebooks library .

I love this fantasy that I got for just 95 cents. It has all 15 stories about Oz and they are wildly entertaining! It may not be a very modern book, but the unique style of writing is fairly enjoyable.

The book is full of L. Frank Baums wonderful writing about Oz! Dorothy goes on many wonderful adventures to: Oz, The Emerald City, Munchkin Land, Ev, The Land of the Mangaboos, Voe,the land of the Gargoyles and many more! The collection also includes the Woggle-bug book, Baum's exclusive book! I also recommend L.Frank Baum-Royal Historian of Oz, it's not in the collection, but find it in your local library or bookstore.

I very much enjoy having this collection on my Nook 2nd Edition, and it works very well with the Nook formatting. It's fantastic to have all the books, including the in-between book publishing / promotional serials. It's equally great to have chapter indexing. There are no illustrations which is mildly disappointing, but all in all this is an easy collection to read.

The Complete Wizard of Oz Collection has never left me bored. I'm always wanting to read more! There are several adventures besides the one that we know of. This book is definitely a gem. I would suggest this book to anyone who likes the original Wizard of Oz, and also anyone who likes a really good story.

This is a great book for young readers. I would absolutely reccomend it to any age if you are looking for a book that you can't put down!

Don't get me wrong - the stories are wonderful. I only knew the story of the Wizard of Oz and wanted to read all the other stories of Oz. However, I purchased the Nook version of this collection and was very disappointed to discover many misspellings, incorrect (or nonexistent) punctuation, and sentences cut off in the middle or left out completely. I will make sure I pay close attention to any further Nook purchases to ensure that I don't buy anything else published by MobileReference.

Loved it! Brings back so many memories how much I loved the movie growing up. Wish I'd read the books as a youth, but really enjoyed them now.

I did not know that there were more than two stories of the Wizard of Oz. I enjoyed reading all the stories and find out about new characters.

Excellent for what it has, but I am disappointed that it has less than half of the canonical 40 OZ books. I would love to see an edition that included at least the 19 Ruth Plummley Thompson OZ books, but I believe they are still in copyright. I will have to hope my childhood books hold together until the others become available again.

Most fascinating stories of a century! What's better than the best books in the world for 95?? Congratulations and rest in peace, L. Frank Baum.

All the Oz novels for just 95 cents, thats awesome, what great novels!
stingzgrrl More than 1 year ago
I still have a few more books left to go before I've read all 15, but they're all so good! After reading a few of them the general theme gets pretty predictable (Dorothy gets lost, has lots of adventures, ends up in Oz), but they're still really well written and engaging reads. I love all the puns and plays on words - I find myself laughing out loud at some of the jokes! Can definitely see why these were so popular!

Best book ever! I would give it+100,000,000,000,000,000,000!

Many people don't know that L. Frank Baum wrote more than just The Wizard of Oz. All of them are grand fun reading.

If you haven't read all of the Oz books you are in for a treat. Even though they were written for children adults will enjoy reading them. I got the series, one book a month, by mail when I was a kid and I read those hard covered books dog eared. I pulled them out again when my son was born and was amazed at how well written they were. We expected our children to be better readers a hundred years ago.
