Overview

Lyman Frank Baum (May 15, 1856 - May 6, 1919) is one of America's most read authors, and he is widely considered one of the premier authors of children's books. Baum wrote dozens of novels and short stories, as well as hundreds of poems, and he even foresaw technological innovations such as computers, televisions and mobile phones, all of which made their way into his writing.

Baum, however, is still best known and best regarded for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and several other titles that took place in the fantasy world of Oz. Every American is familiar with Dorothy and Toto, and Oz has been adapted for movies, screenplays, and more ever since. This is the fourth book in the series.

Meet the Author

American author L. Frank Baum is best known for the enduring Oz series, including The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its thirteen sequels. Baum also penned numerous fantasy novels and other works such as American Fairy Tales, The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus, and The Enchanted Island of Yew under his own name and many pseudonyms including Edith Van Dyne, Susanne Metcalf, Laura Bancroft, and Floyd Akers. Baum’s prose focused on what he believed children are most interested in, and his works are remarkable for their lack of romantic plot. Baum also predicted future inventions such as television, augmented reality, laptop computers, wireless telephones, and advertising on clothing. His works, particularly the Oz books, have been an inspiration for many fantasy novels and have been widely adapted for film and stage. Baum died in 1919, nine days short of his 63rd birthday.

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.

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!!!!!
