About the Author
Lyman Frank Baum, born in Chittenango, New York in 1856, tried his hand at numerous professions but didn′t discover until the age of forty that his true talent lay in writing fantastic tales. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the first of the fourteen full length Oz novels, is his most famous work, but he is also known for his many other fantasies and pseudonymous books.
