Wonderful World of Oz by L. F. Baum

Book Description

Most people are familiar with the land of Oz by way of the classic 1939 film. But the film was based on only the first of fourteen books about Oz in which Baum developed his vision of a socialist paradise and which garnered an immense and loyal following. Three of the novels are collected here. The Wizard of Oz (1900) introduces Dorothy, who arrives from Kansas and meets the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, the Cowardly Lion, and a host of other characters. The Emerald City of Oz (1910) finds Dorothy, Aunt Em, and Uncle Henry coming to Oz just as the wicked Nome King is plotting to conquer its people. In Baum's final novel, Glinda of Oz (1920), Dorothy and Princess Ozma try to prevent a battle between the Skeezers and the Flatheads. Tapping into a deeply rooted desire in himself and his readers to live in a peaceful country in which relationships were based not on commodity exchange but on the sharing of talents and gifts, Baum's imaginative creation, like all great utopian literature, holds out the possibility for change.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Baum wrote 14 Oz books, three of which are gathered here in a new edition. The first, and best known, is of course The Wizard of Oz which introduces us to Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion. The Emerald City of Oz finds Dorothy back in Oz with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, confronting the evil Nome King, while in Glinda of Oz Dorothy and Princess Ozma step in to thwart a war between the Skeezers and the Flatheads. These utopian tales continue to exert a fascination over children of all ages. (Kirkus UK)
