DOROTHY AND THE WIZARD IN OZ

(Chicago: The Reilly & Lee Co., [c.1938]).

The OZ series of books have been popular with children since their initial introduction and remain so to this very day. Frank Baum has been called an “American Lewis Carroll” and he certainly ranks among the legends of children’s literature. In the original “Wizard of OZ” the character of Dorothy returned to Kansas and it was not Baum intention to bring her back when he began writing the books in series. His young fans would not have it however. In this, her third trip to OZ, Dorothy is transported by an earthquake while in California. Item #31161
