American Fairy Tales

Written by L. Frank Baum

American Fairy Tales Synopsis

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;
