L. Frank Baum – Sky Island

“Hello,” said the boy. “Hello,” answered Trot, looking up surprised. “Where did you come from?” “Philadelphia,” said he. “Dear me,” said Trot, “you’re a long way from home, then.” “‘Bout as far as I can get, in this country,” the boy replied, gazing out over the water. “Isn’t this the Pacific Ocean?” “Of course.” “Why […]

L. Frank Baum – Rinkitink in Oz

If you have a map of the Land of Oz handy, you will find that the great Nonestic Ocean washes the shores of the Kingdom of Rinkitink, between which and the Land of Oz lies a strip of the country of the Nome King and a Sandy Desert. The Kingdom of Rinkitink isn’t very big […]

Tik-Tok of Oz – L. Frank Baum

“I won’t!” cried Ann; “I won’t sweep the floor. It is beneath my dignity.” “Some one must sweep it,” replied Ann’s younger sister, Salye; “else we shall soon be wading in dust. And you are the eldest, and the head of the family.” “I’m Queen of Oogaboo,” said Ann, proudly. “But,” she added with a […]

ONE day Mr. H. M. Woggle-Bug, T. E., becoming separated from his comrades who had accompanied him from the Land of Oz, and finding that time hung heavy on his hands (he had four of them), decided to walk down the Main street of the City and try to discover something or other of interest. […]

The Tin Woodman of Oz – L. Frank Baum

The Sea Fairies – L. Frank Baum

“Nobody,” said Cap’n Bill solemnly, “ever sawr a mermaid an’ lived to tell the tale.” “Why not?” asked Trot, looking earnestly up into the old sailor’s face. They were seated on a bench built around a giant acacia tree that grew just at the edge of the bluff. Below them rolled the blue waves of […]

The Scarecrow of Oz – L. Frank Baum

“Seems to me,” said Cap’n Bill, as he sat beside Trot under the big acacia tree, looking out over the blue ocean, “seems to me, Trot, as how the more we know, the more we find we don’t know.” “I can’t quite make that out, Cap’n Bill,” answered the little girl in a serious voice, […]

The Road to Oz – L. Frank Baum

Well, my dears, here is what you have asked for: another “Oz Book” about Dorothy’s strange adventures. Toto is in this story, because you wanted him to be there, and many other characters which you will recognize are in the story, too. Indeed, the wishes of my little correspondents have been considered as carefully as […]

The Patchwork Girl of Oz – L. Frank Baum

“Where’s the butter, Unc Nunkie?” asked Ojo. Unc looked out of the window and stroked his long beard. Then he turned to the Munchkin boy and shook his head. “Isn’t,” said he. “Isn’t any butter? That’s too bad, Unc. Where’s the jam then?” inquired Ojo, standing on a stool so he could look through all […]

The Magic of Oz – L. Frank Baum

On the east edge of the Land of Oz, in the Munchkin Country, is a big, tall hill called Mount Munch. One one side, the bottom of this hill just touches the Deadly Sandy Desert that separates the Fairyland of Oz from all the rest of the world, but on the other side, the hill […]

The Lost Princess of Oz – L. Frank Baum

There could be no doubt of the fact: Princess Ozma, the lovely girl ruler of the Fairyland of Oz, was lost. She had completely disappeared. Not one of her subjects—not even her closest friends—knew what had become of her. It was Dorothy who first discovered it. Dorothy was a little Kansas girl who had come […]

The Flying Girl – L. Frank Baum

“May I go now, Mr. Burthon?” asked Orissa. He looked up from his desk, stared a moment and nodded. It is doubtful if he saw the girl, for his eyes had an introspective expression. Orissa went to a cabinet wardrobe and took down her coat and hat. Turning around to put them on she moved […]

The Emerald City of Oz – L. Frank Baum

The Nome King was in an angry mood, and at such times he was very disagreeable. Every one kept away from him, even his Chief Steward Kaliko. Therefore the King stormed and raved all by himself, walking up and down in his jewel-studded cavern and getting angrier all the time. Then he remembered that it […]

Phoebe Daring; A Story for Young Folk – L. Frank Baum

“It’s a shame!” cried Becky Daring, indignantly shaking her scraggly red locks for emphasis. “So say we all of us,” observed her brother Don in matter-of-fact tones. “But that won’t help it, Beck.” “Wasn’t it all Judge Ferguson’s fault?” asked little Sue, listening with round, solemn eyes. “Why, the poor old judge couldn’t help dying, […]
