L. Frank Baum first introduced us to his enduring creation in 1899. telling tales to children. He was already a published writer when it was suggested that he write them in a book and THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ was published soon after that. And the rest, as they say, was history. It has spawned numerous other books. Ruth Plumley Thompson took over the series after Baum's death(the fourteenth Oz book was published posthumously) and wrote twenty-one novels, with a book of Oz poetry appearing in t ...more

The Magic of Childhood is Resurrected

When I was a child, I read several of the Oz books, but not the ones in this series so I don’t know why they were different. The last one I owned was Terribubble in Oz and I think that was by Ruth Baum. This series contains fifteen of Frank’s works and the first one, from which the movie the “Wizard of Oz” was taken is much different than that story so I don’t think I read the first book as a child. My only problem was that I have a Kindle Light and so the il

I have been requested by Doma Publishing House to review this works. My review is of the overall effectiveness of all these books as one accessible library available for e-book readers. I bought this works via Amazon.com

I have to applaud Doma Publishing House for developing these e-books from the originally printed versions. Technology has really given so many options for readers today. I, myself, prefer e-books over paperback or hardcover books. It's much easier to add my Kindle Fire HD 8.9" ta

I'd always heard references to the wizard of Oz in other books and wanted to read the book. It was worth reading and I loved being in the land of Oz with its odd people who I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know.

I read these books to my five-year-old son and he enjoyed them. They are somewhat innocent and there aren't too many negative themes in the books for the most part if you are willing to ad-lib when someone dies for example.

These stories were incredibly creative for their time. Many of the stories must have been strong influences on the creators of: Alice in Wonderland; The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, the Hobbit stories; etc. Read them to your kids and see who they bring up as modern-day Dorothy and friends.

“Why didn't the Eskimo keep it?" she asked, looking at the Magnet with interest. "He got tired of being loved and longed for some one to hate him. So he gave me the Magnet and the very next day a grizzly bear ate him." "Wasn't he sorry then?" she inquired. "He didn't say," replied the shaggy man,” 1 likes
