In 1900 - now over 100 years ago - a man named L. Frank Baum first published his first OZ adventure - The Wizard of Oz.  It was an instant success and heralded as the first truly American fairytale.  It was made into a silent movie in 1902 and then into the ever-popular MGM classic in 1939, not only with sound but with COLOR!

L. Frank Baum published thirteen other OZ adventure books before his death in 1919 (actually, the last of his books was published posthumously in 1920).  Various other authors have continued the OZ stories since that time.  In our opinion, none have enjoyed the passion and gained the popularity of that enjoyed by his great-grandson, Roger S. Baum. Roger S. Baum has published more than ten OZ adventures and his books are enjoyed by millions!  He is considered one of the current top ten best-selling authors of children's books.  Some believe that J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series may have been influenced by these adventures in OZ.  Mr. Baum is constantly sought after for personal appearances and book-signings - and he honors as many of those requests as he can, while still producing more wonderful stories.

For the first time in over twenty-five years, here is a new Oz adventure, founded on and continuing the famous Oz stories of L. Frank Baum and written by his great-grandson.

Dorothy of Oz, by Roger S. BaumThere is trouble in Oz and Dorothy is needed!  With Glinda's help, she and Toto return to Oz.  Joined by her old friends the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Lion, Dorothy sets out on a perilous journey to stop the crafty Jester from using the power of the Wicked Witch of the West's wand to turn the people of Oz into china dolls.  But that seems to be the least of Dorothy's problems as her travels lead her straight into a treacherous maze, a cave full of very hungry dragons, an evil spell that could destroy the Yellow Brick Road - and the daunting knowledge that it is up to her to stop the Jester's terrible plan.

Readers will welcome the return of old Oz favorites and will love meeting new friends like Tugg, a gruff talking boat, and Wiser, an owl with an unlucky attraction to molasses.  And Elisabeth Miles' fifty wonderful illustrations capture all the fun.

Written in the whimsical style of L. Frank Baum, Dorothy of Oz is sure to delight Oz fans old and new as they journey once again into this magical land.

Elizabeth Miles is the illustrator of many books for children, including editions of Puss in Boots, The Night Before Christmas, and The Velveteen Rabbit.  She lives in Laguna, California.
