Overview

This file includes three books: The Lizard of Oz, Now and Then and Other Tales from Ome (Now and Then, Julie's Book, Mary Jane's Book, and The Little Oops Named Ker Plop), and Hundreds and Hundreds of Gerbils and Other Stories (Hundreds and Hundreds of Gerbils, Tiger in the Intercom, and See You Later Elevator). The Lizard of Oz: When an elementary class sets out on a quest to save the world from disenchantment, their adventures reveal paradoxes of the human mind and ways of awakening the magic within us. Library Journal -- "An intriguing and very entertaining little novel" Aspect -- "Carroll and Tolkien have a new companion" Lancaster (PA) Independent Press -- "a work so saturated that the mind is both stoned with pleasure and alive with wonder" Philadelphia Bulletin -- "A commentary on our times done delightfully" Now and Then: Boston Globe -- "A highly original collection of short stories -- sometimes humorous, sometimes profound." Philadelphia Daily News -- "Seltzer has produced four charming stories for, he suggests, children around the age of nine. Adults will find the book has its appeal too: My favorite story is the one about the little princess who had a nice mother and was very happy and therefore very unhappy because how could Prince Charming come and rescue her if there was nothing to rescue her from?"
