1 review about Dorothy And the Wizard in Oz

This is another delightful volume in Baum's series about Oz

  • Oct 22, 2010
Baum wrote a number of books about Oz. He called himself the "Royal Historian of Oz." He wrote that he would have liked to compose other books, in addition to those on Oz, but "dear children" have flooded him with letters clamoring for more and more Oz books, so he is complying with their requests. This volume written in 1908 and still interesting today contains twenty tales. He tells about Princess Ozma, Jim the cab-horse, the nine piglets, Eureka the kitten, and Dorothy and the humbug wizard, of course. He promises to write about Dorothy's dog in his next book.

His books are written in simple English with occasional near hard words that children should learn. His descriptions are vivid and are the kind that children delight in reading. For example, Baum describes a train "puffed and groaned and moved slowly away from the track." Another examplle is Dorothy explaining why she called her cat Eureka. "I named my kitten that because I found it," she explained. "Uncle Henry says 'Eureka' means 'I have found it.'" Another example is when a boy tried to get the horse to move, "Dorothy thought he just wiggled one of his drooping ears, but that was all."
