Meet the Author

Lyman Frank Baum (May 15, 1856 – May 6, 1919) was an American author of children's books, best known for writing The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He wrote thirteen novel sequels, nine other fantasy novels, and a host of other works (55 novels in total, plus four "lost" novels, 82 short stories, over 200 poems, an unknown number of scripts, and many miscellaneous writings), and made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and screen. His works predicted such century-later commonplaces as television, laptop computers (The Master Key), wireless telephones (Tik-Tok of Oz), women in high risk, action-heavy occupations (Mary Louise in the Country), and the ubiquity of advertising on clothing (Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work).

I purchased this book because it had 8 books and 8 audio books. I wanted something for my son to listen to and read along with. Unfortunately the audio books do not work for android tablets. You have to open your browser and type in a http address in for each book. I did that and at first they worked. But after listening 2 times, they stopped working. I can still read the books to my son from the android tablet but the audio books don't work at all.
