In this biography geared towards children, author Kathleen Krull gives us an up-close-and-personal look at the life of L. Frank Baum. <BR/><BR/>Beginning with his privileged upbringing in 1860s New York, chronicling his never-ending money woes, and ending with his successful publishing of THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ in 1900, Ms. Krull takes us into the life and times of a brilliant author. <BR/><BR/>Paired with beautiful illustrations by Kevin Hawkes, THE ROAD TO OZ is a testament to the man who brought us a legendary story that still holds the power to entertain. Even now, over one hundred years after its original publication, both the book and the movie are known throughout the world by thousands.
