With 94 illustrations, by the author of the Wizard of Oz. According to Wikipedia: "e;The Surprising Adventures of the Magical Monarch of Mo and His People (copyright registered 17 June 1896) is the first full-length children's fantasy book by L. Frank Baum. Originally published in 1899 as A New Wonderland, Being the First Account Ever Printed of the Beautiful Valley, and the Wonderful Adventures of Its Inhabitants, the book was reissued in 1903 with a new title in order to capitalize upon the alliterative title of Baum's successful The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The book is only slightly altered--Mo is called Phunniland or Phunnyland, but aside from the last paragraph of the first chapter, they are essentially the same book...

Sky Island

Sky Island

Author: L. Frank Baum Format: eBook Release Date: 01/03/2018

According to Wikipedia: "e;Sky Island: Being the Further Adventures of Trot and Cap'n Bill after Their Visit to the Sea Fairies is a children's fantasy novel written by L. Frank Baum, illustrated by John R. Neill, and published in 1912 by the Reilly & Britton Company - the same constellation of forces that produced the Oz books in the first decades of the twentieth century. As the full title indicates, Sky Island is a sequel to Baum's The Sea Fairies of 1911. Both books were intended as parts of a projected long-running fantasy series to replace the Oz books. Given the relatively tepid reception of the first book in the series, however, Baum tried to attract young readers by including two characters from his Oz mythos in Sky Island - Button Bright and Polychrome, originally introduced in The Road to Oz (1909)."e;

Sea Fairies

Sea Fairies

Author: L. Frank Baum Format: eBook Release Date: 01/03/2018

According to Wikipedia: "e;Baum had decided to end the Oz series with The Emerald City of Oz in 1910, after six installments over the first decade of the twentieth century. The Sea Fairies was intended to be the first in a new series of fantasy novels, which Baum and Reilly & Britton continued the next year with Sky Island. Unfortunately for author and publisher, the two volumes of the new projected series did not meet with the same success as the Oz books previously had. The first edition of The Sea Fairies sold 12,400 copies in its initial year on the market, where The Emerald City of Oz had sold 20,000. Even when Baum's books experienced a major resurgence in interest and sales in 1918, The Sea Fairies sold only 611 copies that year while the Oz books and even Baum's non-Oz works were selling thousands of copies. Once Baum returned to writing Oz books with The Patchwork Girl of Oz in 1913, the Trot series was retired - but the main characters lived on. Trot and Cap'n Bill are the main protagonists in The Scarecrow of Oz (1915) - the plot of which was reworked from the projected third book in their aborted series - and they play a significant role in The Magic of Oz (1919). Trot appears in The Lost Princess of Oz (1917) and Glinda of Oz (1920) as well."e;

Mother Goose in Prose

Mother Goose in Prose

Author: L. Frank Baum Format: eBook Release Date: 01/03/2018

According to Wikipedia: "e;Mother Goose in Prose is a collection of twenty-two children's stories based on Mother Goose nursery rhymes. It was the first children's book written by L. Frank Baum, and the first book illustrated by Maxfield Parrish. It was originally published in 1897 by Way and Williams of Chicago, and re-released by the George M. Hill Company in 1901.The book opens with an introduction by Baum that traces the history of Mother Goose. It is followed by the original text of a nursery rhyme with a broader story to establish its literary context... The book's last selection features a girl named Dorothy who can talk to animals - an anticipation of the Oz books. When Baum later included this story in his Juvenile Speaker (1910) and The Snuggle Tales (1916-17), he changed the girl's name to Doris, to avoid confusing her with Dorothy Gale."e;

American Fairy Tales

American Fairy Tales

Author: L. Frank Baum Format: eBook Release Date: 01/03/2018

According to Wikipedia: "e;American Fairy Tales is the title of a collection of twelve fantasy stories by L. Frank Baum, published in 1901..The stories, as critics have noted, lack the high-fantasy aspect of the best of Baum's work, in Oz or out. With ironic or nonsensical morals attached to their ends, their tone is more satirical, glib, and tongue-in-cheek than is usual in children's stories; the serialization in newspapers for adult readers was appropriate for the materials. "e;The Magic Bon Bons"e; was the most popular of the tales, judging by number of reprints. Two of the stories, "e;The Enchanted Types"e; and "e;The Dummy That Lived,"e; employ knooks and ryls, the fairies that Baum would use in The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus the next year, 1902. "e;The Dummy That Lived"e; depends upon the idea of a department-store mannequin brought to life, an early expression of an idea that would be re-used by many later writers in television and films."e;

The Wonderful World of the Wizard of Oz, which the the Library of Congress named as `America's greatest and best-loved homegrown fairytale', is one of the great works of children's literature. The story concerns Dorothy, a young girl from Kansas, who, with her little dog Toto, is caught up in a terrifying tornado, which whisks her far away to the magical land of Oz. Here she encounters the Munchkins, strange small creatures, who tell her that in order for her to return home she must follow the yellow brick road to the Emerald City and seek out the mysterious Wizard of Oz. On the journey she encounters the Tin Woodman, the brainless Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion, each of whom wish to make a request of the Wizard. After several adventures, including an encounter with a deadly poppy field and being chased by winged monkeys, the travellers reach the Emerald City. The story rolls along at a tremendous pace in clear and engaging prose, which has helped the novel to become a perennial favourite with children. The appeal of the kaleidoscopic world of the land of Oz with all its incredible and fantastic elements and characters has great appeal to the unfettered mind of the young - and indeed those grown-ups who still retain a romantic imagination.

Ozma of Oz: A Record of Her Adventures with Dorothy Gale of Kansas, Billina the Yellow Hen, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodsman, Tik-Tok, the Cowardly Lion and the Hungry Tiger; Besides Other Good People Too Numerous to Mention Faithfully Recorded Herein published on July 30, 1907, was the third book of L. Frank Baum's Oz series. It was the first in which Baum was clearly intending a series of Oz books.[1] It is the first Oz book where the majority of the action takes place outside of the Land of Oz. Only the final two chapters take place in Oz itself.[2] This reflects a subtle change in theme: in the first book, Oz is the dangerous land through which Dorothy must win her way back to Kansas; in the third, Oz is the end and aim of the book.[3] Dorothy's desire to return home is not as desperate as in the first book, and it is her uncle's need for her rather than hers for him that makes her return.[4] The book was illustrated throughout in color by artist John R. Neill. It bore the following dedication: "e;To all the boys and girls who read my stories - and especially to the Dorothys - this book is lovingly dedicated."e;

This was the first of Baum's books for children; it is a collection of very short stories, each based upon one of the familiar rhymes of Mother Goose.

[and] for that reason I have written this book."e; Although he tells us that he has "e;followed mainly the suggestions of the rhymes"e;, actually the tales are original inventions of the author rather than (as one might suppose from the title) merely expansions of the old nursery rhymes. Dorothy, a little farm girl, appears in the last story, and it is likely that she is the original idea for the Dorothy who later becomes the heroine of Oz.
