L. Frank Baum: Creator of Oz: A Biography
Katharine M. Rogers (au). Since it was first introduced over 100 years ago in the book, L. Frank Baum’s world of Oz has become one of the most beloved creations in children’s lit. & film. But who was the creator? Born in 1856 in upstate NY, Baum was a classic “late bloomer” who tried acting, selling & editing. Finally, in his late 30s, he turned his attention to selling the stories he’d been telling to his sons & their friends. After a few books were published with varying success, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” was released in 1900. It quickly became a bestseller & has remained so ever since. When Oz was transformed into a “traveling musical extravaganza” that earned raves across America, Baum became rich & famous. Baum wrote 13 additional Oz books & other fantasies. Illustrations.
