About the Author

Lyman Frank Baum (May 15, 1856 - May 6, 1919), better known as L. Frank Baum, was an American author chiefly famous for his children's books, particularly The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its sequels. He wrote a total of 14 novels in the Oz series, plus 41 other novels, 83 short stories, over 200 poems, and at least 42 scripts. He made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and the nascent medium of film; the 1939 adaptation of the first Oz book would become a landmark of 20th century cinema. His 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 and action-heavy occupations (Mary Louise in the Country), and the ubiquity of advertising on clothing (Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work).

I love the Oz books, but it can be tough wading through all the versions available at Barnes & Noble for the Nook. It's a mess. What's worse is that the reviews seem to be combined together in some way for many different versions - some with the illustrations and some without. In fact, even though I'm trying to review the Eltanin book, this review might show up under other totally different books. So let me give you a tip - get the Eltanin Publishing version. It has all the illustrations and it is formatted nicely.

All of L. Frank Baum's Oz books are fantastic. The trouble with this specific book is not the book itself but the publisher: Bottom of the Hill Publishing. It's more like bottom of the barrel. The cover is pixelated and there are hardly any illustrations, if any at all, in any of their Oz books. The pages appear to have been typed up and printed at anyone's home computer. Do yourself a favor, don't buy from Bottom of the Hill Publishing.

I just couldn't put it down, and it's even better if you happen to like The Wizard of Oz

I read (and recorded) this book for my little sister years ago, and from what she tells me twenty years later, she still treasures the wonderful story! Baum created a wonderful world for us all to enjoy, and I encourage all to explore!
