About the Author

Lyman Frank Baum (1856 - 1919), better known by his pen name L. Frank Baum, was an American author chiefly known for his children's books, particularly The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He wrote thirteen novel sequels, nine other fantasy novels and a host of other works (55 novels in total, plus four "lost works", 83 short stories, over 200 poems, an unknown number of scripts and many miscellaneous writings). His works anticipated such century-later commonplaces as television, augmented reality, laptop computers (The Master Key), wireless telephones (Tik-Tok of Oz), women in high risk, action-heavy occupations (Mary Louise in the Country), and the ubiquity of advertising on clothing (Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work).

I love these reproductions. Beautifully done. It loos great on my Nook as well as my iPad Nook app. The illustrations are wonderful. Before purchasing one of the Oz books, make sure it is from Eltanin Publishing. They are the very best versions.

Even though the plot is dull, at least it has a plot. I tired of the endless journey through fairy country, meeting new and odd people, especially after having finished ["Road to Oz"] immediately prior. Although one never believes the Nome king and allies pose much of a real threat, that is one of the beauties of a fairy country: no one is never in any real danger. This book also seems much more philosophical than many of the other Oz books as much ado is made about the fact that people in Oz don't have money and everyone just works for the good of everyone else because it pleases them to do so, and those who are tiresome are sent to live in cities made up of other people who are equally tiresome in the same manner. This is a sound philosophy, which, unfortunately only works in fairy countries.

This is one of my favorite Oz books.  When I was growing up, I read all 15 of Frank Baum's Oz books and most of the  ones written by Ruth Plumly Thompson.   I love these books and am so happy you can get them with the illustrations. I
