L. Frank Baum (1856-1919) became very famous a loved for his later books on Dorthy and Oz. This book written in 1903, and still delightful today, contains fourteen tales. Baum warns his readers that the stories are not true, "they could not be true and be so marvelous. No one is expected to believe them; they were meant to excite laughter and to gladden the heart."

The monarch of Mo is a king of average size who is "delightfully jolly when he is not sad, and seldom sad if he can possibly be jolly." He does not deal in magic, but "he leads such a queer life in such a queer country that his history will surely seem magical to us who inhabit civilized places." Why is there no map of the land of Mo? Because the map-makers did not know about the land, but the readers who read Baum's book will learn what they do not know, and will enjoy doing so.
