He has appeared as a guest on Today on NBC as well as Showbiz Today on CNN. Roger has followed in the hallowed footsteps of his ancestor by creating twelve books to date about the magical Land of Oz. One of his books, Lion of Oz and the Badge of Courage, was made into an animated movie by Sony Wonder airing for the first time in August of 2000 on the Disney Channel and featuring the voices of Tim Curry, Dom DeLuise, Jason Priestly and Lynn Redgrave. Another, Dorothy of Oz, has been made into an animated adventure for release in 2012, featuring the voice talents of Lea Michele, Martin Short, Dan Ackroyd, Kelsey Grammer, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Dancy, Jim Belushi and Megan Hilty.

    A Wonderful New Oz Story

    I am a big Roger S. Baum fan. All of his books have added to the Oz collection. Readers will find this an exciting book with new characters and a wonderful plot twist. This is a fresh Oz story that will bring joy to all Oz fans. I understand he is writing a 2nd volume to the Odyssey, I for one can hardly wait. I understand a movie production company has just acquired the rights. What more can we say.

    Oz Odyssey... more like Lame Oz afternoon walk

    I received Roger S. Baum's new Oz book The Oz Odyssey this Christmas and immediately read it. The binding and dust cover are an excellent touch to this edition and Victoria Seitzinger's illustrations are marvelous. The overall layout of the book is spectacular. It looks beautiful and professional. Although, problems arise in the book's actual content. The story of The Oz Odyssey is undeveloped and short. The thin plot is really a variation of previous elements in Roger Baum's previous Oz novels such as L. Frank Baum's apperance is reminescent to that seen in Roger Baum's Green Star of Oz. Characters and events are introduced at random without any explaination of their being placed in the story. And when there is an interesting character or moment in the story it ends abruptly, leaving the reader disappointed. Near the beginning of the book, there is a note concerning inconsistencies between the Oz stories. They exist and in no way 'subtract from the many adventures.' Although, this book does subtract from the many adventures. It seems to have been thrown together to make a near publication date. The book's title is a misnomer for it surely is too short to be an Odyssey. The lack of story and character development creates a lack of warmth and familiarity with Oz that leaves a sour taste in the readers mouth. It may only be a children's book but surely it could be a whole lot better.
