Little Wizard Stories of Oz

The "Little Wizard Stories of Oz" are six short stories written by L. Frank Baum in 1913. By all accounts, Baum intended to finish the Oz series with "The Emerald City of Oz," published in 1910. Following that, he attempted to write non-Oz books, publishing "The Sea Fairies" in 1911 and "Sky Island" in 1912. But, (as Baum himself laments in the prefaces of many of his Oz books,) his "little tyrants" were only interested in hearing more Oz stories. So in 1913, he returned to writing about Oz, putting out both The "Little Wizard Stories" and "The Patchwork Girl of Oz" that year.

According to this comprehensive Oz FAQ site, The Little Wizard Stories were geared toward younger children and were originally published separately, "similar in style to today's Little Golden Books." The next year, they were published together as one volume.

Each Little Wizard Story revolves around the adventures of two famous Oz characters, and their humorous adventures in and around the land of Oz. (Summary by Maddie)

I love these little stories. although not nearly as deep or complex a book as some other Oz stories, this one has a certain appeal to it. plus it has some interesting fleshing out of characters that u don't find everywhere. overall this is a great recording. narrator is clear, intelligent and an excellent reader. 5 stars *"greetings and salutations snow leopard" from your kindred wintercat. ice panther

Its very funny and entertaining. But I wish it were longer. Also if this book connects to the Wizard of Oz. If you haven't read that book yet this one won't make sense

Good
