The Woggle-Bug Bookby L. Frank Baum, Ike Morgan
One day, Mr. H. M. Woggle-Bug, became separated from his
Baum's works anticipated such century-later commonplaces as television, augmented reality, 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).
One day, Mr. H. M. Woggle-Bug, became separated from his comrades who had accompanied him from the Land of Oz. Finding that time hung heavy on his hands -- and he had four of them! -- he decided to walk down the Main Street of the City and try to discover something-or-other of interest. So begins the adventures of the largest Woggle-Bug you have ever seen -- if you have ever seen even one -- in a thoroughly modern 1905 American city -- strutting down the street, his pink handkerchief in hand, his cane swirling . . . only to fall in love with the most stirringly enchanting beauty in a window! The Woggle-Bugs befuddled heart will lead him into a twisting series of adventures, from a ride in a balloon to run-ins with weasels -- and kings! It has long been one of the rarest items in the Baum bibliography. Baum's text has been controversial for its use of ethnic humor stereotypes.
