Memorably illustrated tale of Dorothy's move to Oz. Entertaining fantasy introduces the amusingly bizarre Cuttenclips, Wogglebug, Grand Gallipoot, and the Flutterbudgets. 105 black-and-white illustrations.

Aunt Emma, Uncle Henry and Dorothy, well treated during a Kansas draught-enforced visit at Ozma's court, are nevertheless unhappy because they have nothing special to do. But a trip through the Quadling country to Glinda's region puts new life in everyone. The Kansans decide to stay and Glinda decides to make Oz invisible to passing airplanes. Harry McNaught's flat, paper cut-out technique in the pictures, cleverly suggest depth and humor. (Kirkus Reviews)

L. Frank Baum

Lyman Frank Baum, born May 15 1856, 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, 83 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 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).

On May 5, 1919, Baum suffered from a stroke. He died quietly the next day, nine days short of his 63rd birthday.His final Oz book, Glinda of Oz, was published on July 10, 1920, a year after his death. The Oz series was continued long after his death by other authors, notably Ruth Plumly Thompson, who wrote an additional nineteen Oz books.
