Dorothy and the Wizard In Oz (Oz #4) by Frank L. Baum
Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz - L. Frank Baum

Had to delete the blog review because it kept showing a larger picture of the book. Being the perfectionist I am sometimes, I just deleted it because it was getting on my nerves and I couldn't figure out what was going on. lol

 

I did enjoy the book, as I always do with the Oz books. Glad to be gradually working my way through these books. It was good to see many of the old characters from the first few books and of course some new ones.

 

Hopefully I will be able to get a couple more finished before the end of the year and can finally say I have a total of two bind ups/6 stories finished. :)

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz - L. Frank Baum

No thief, however skillful, can rob one of knowledge, and that is why knowledge is the best and safest treasure to acquire.

 

L. Frank Baum

 

What do Capt. Hugh Fitzgerald, Schuyler Staunton, and Edith Van Dyne have in common? They were all pseudonyms used by Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum (born May 15, 1856) for his non-Oz books. Before he found success as a writer at age 44, Baum raised fancy chickens, edited trade publications, ran a newspaper, and owned a general store.

#31 - The Patchwork Girl of Oz by L. Frank Baum
The Patchwork Girl of Oz - L. Frank Baum,John R. Neill

(I know it should be #30. But book 30 was "In the Dark, in the Woods" and I'm not ready to write a review. I am not sure I wil)

 

Great, as usual! I love meeting new characters (Dorothy is no longer the main character), but still getting to see a bit of the old ones, that was great.

The part with the Horners was hilarious, I love all the puns.

I can't wait to read other Oz stories, this author was a genius!
 
This was my read for Fantasyland 7 and I earned 3$ for this (262 pages)!
 
Bank: 45$
 
Onto The Great Gatsby now, that I chose for Main Street 11.

#26 - The Emerald City of Oz by L. Frank Baum
The Emerald City of Oz - L. Frank Baum

Dorothy’s Aunt and Uncle are in trouble at the farm. They do not have enough money to pay everything and they might be expulsed. Dorothy says to them they could go and live in Oz with her and Ozma agrees to that. So, once again, we found ourselves in the beautiful Land of Oz where Dorothy is going to live some great adventures and meet some new people.

Like every time I read an Oz story, I’m amazed at how funny it is. This seems like it was the last story about Oz but I know there are many others, so I am not sure about what happened here, I guess I will see when I read the others.

I had a lot of fun reading this book and I think Oz is one of the greatest story ever, I’m totally fond of this world.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz: Illustrations by Michael Sieben - Michael Sieben,L. Frank Baum

I'm not sure if I ever read this book before, but I bought it thanks to the unusual illustration style of Michael Sieben, thinking Lily would like it. We just finished it up as her bedtime story, though at 2.5 years old, she's short on attention, so we'll be reading it again when she's older and more appreciative :)
