Overview

Dorothy And The Wizard In Oz
by L. Frank Baum

Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz is the fourth book set in the Land of Oz written by L. Frank Baum. Written shortly after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and around the time Baum moved to California, the book starts with an earthquake in California. Dorothy and others are swallowed up by cracks in the earth, and fall into an underground cavern, where begin their adventures.

In the story, set after the last book, Dorothy is joining Uncle Henry in California at Hugson's Ranch, on their way home from Australia, Dorothy having visited friends in San Francisco. She strikes up an acquaintance with Hugson's nephew and her second cousin, Zeb of Hugson's Ranch. Dorothy, Eureka (her cat) and Zeb are riding a buggy being pulled by a cab-horse named Jim when an earthquake starts and opens a crevice beneath them that sends them hurtling into the bowels of the Earth.

Dorothy, Eureka, Jim, Zeb, and the buggy alight in the Land of the Mangaboos, a race of vegetable people who accuse them of causing the Rain of Stones (what the Mangaboos call the earthquake because they are beneath the surface of the Earth, and earth instead falls on them). Zeb is surprised by this strange new land, but Dorothy surmises that they are in a fairy country because they are meeting vegetable people and Jim and Eureka are now speaking. Just as they are about to be sentenced to death by the Mangaboos, a hot air balloon falls out of the sky and in the basket is the Wizard of Oz (who Dorothy last met as he floated away from the Emerald City).

Meet the Author

Born in New York in 1856, Frank Baum had his first best-selling children's book with 1899's Father Goose, His Book. The following year, Baum scored an even bigger hit with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and went on to write 13 more Oz books before his death in 1919. His stories have formed the basis for such popular films as The Wizard of Oz (1939) and Oz the Great and Powerful (2013).

Lyman Frank Baum was born on May 15, 1856, in Chittenango, New York. In 1900, Frank Baum wrote one of the most famous works of children's literature, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, later known as The Wizard of Oz. He enjoyed a comfortable upbringing as the son of a barrel factory owner who also had some success in the oil business. Named "Lyman" after an uncle, Baum hated his first name and chose to be called by his middle name "Frank" instead.

Baum's education began with tutors at home in his early years. At the age of 12, he went to the Peekskill Military Academy. Baum left the school after a health crisis two years later, apparently suffering from some type of heart condition. Never earning a high school degree, he spent his early adulthood exploring his interest in acting and writing for the stage.

    Part of the original children's fantasy series adults will also enjoy!

    I've been reading the full Wizard of Oz series since childhood. Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz continues Dorothy's adventures in the Land of Oz after an earthquake transports her there once again. Filled with fantastical creatures, characters and compelling storytelling that fill your imagination. By far more than just a story for children...this book and the entire Oz series is something that adults will certainly enjoy as well.

    Underground Oz Similarity

    Dorothy meets her cousin, Zeb, and is riding the horse and buggy home when an earthqake hits, the ground splits, and Dorothy and Zeb are stuck in an underground world. They see many marvelous lands underground, full of surprises! How will Dorothy get home? Read the books and see for yourself! Baum has done it again... created another marvelous book with excitement on every page!!! THIS IS A MUST-HAVE TO YOUR OZ COLLECTION!!!!!
