When moviegoers accompany Dorothy through the gates of the Emerald City, they may think they have discovered all there is to see of Oz—but as real friends of the Wizard know, more lies behind the curtain. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, on which the 1939 film was based, was only the first of 14 Oz books. Together these works constitute a series rich in allusions to a broad range of literary traditions, including fairy tale, myth, epic, the picaresque novel, and visions of utopia. Reflecting on L. Frank Baum’s entire series of full-length Oz books, this study introduces readers to the great folklorist who created not only Dorothy and friends, but countless wonderful characters who still await discovery. Close analysis of each book invites readers to search Baum’s fascinating stories for meaning and mythical quality. Progressing chronologically through the canon, the author discusses literary devices and important thematic implications in each book, arguing that Baum wrote for the pleasure of both children and adults, both to provide entertainment and to teach moral lessons. Of particular significance is the argument, sustained over several chapters, that Baum modeled his Oz books on classic mythical patterns, rewriting Oz history in nearly every book to produce a different set of backgrounds and a different conception of utopia for his imaginary kingdom. This variety of backgrounds and archetypes gives Baum’s books a truly universal appeal. Examinations of his non-Oz books and his other Oz works, such as Little Wizard Stories of Oz and The Woggle-Bug Book, illuminate the discussion of the Oz novels.

Dorothy Gale’s trip from Kansas to the Emerald City—in print, on screen, and on stage—has enchanted audiences around the world for more than a century. But what is her magical adventure really about? And can studying such classic tales help today’s writers improve their craft? In The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum: A Story Grid Masterworks Analysis Guide, Shawn Coyne answers these questions and more. In Oz, Coyne finds a pitch-perfect illustration of the Heroic Journey 2.0, his revolutionary take on Joseph Campbell’s monomyth. Coyne exposes the essential ingredients that define the book’s life-or-death Action Story, coming-of-age Worldview Story, and transcendent Heroic Journey. Writers who take up the challenge and put the Heroic Journey 2.0 to work will craft stories that resonate across time and cultures and provide the emotional catharsis their readers crave. By the end of Baum’s book, Dorothy has survived a worldview-shattering moment and committed to go on, creating new meaning in her life. Your journey as a storyteller begins with the same commitment to make meaning in the world, and this Guide will set you on the right path.

"The book has a bright and joyous atmosphere and does not dwell upon killing and deeds of violence. Enough stirring adventure enters into it, however, to flavor it with zest ...It will indeed be strange if there be a normal child who will not enjoy the story." "An original departure in children's literature, in every way novel and unique. ... The text is charming and will prove interesting to both young and old. ..." - The New York Times, 1900. " 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' has become America's greatest and best-loved homegrown fairy tale. The first totally American fantasy for children, it is one of the most-read children's books." - Library of Congress. "The Oz books are far ahead of their time both scientifically and politically. They are full of inventions that would not appear on the market for most of the century, among them a robot man, an artificial heart and limbs, a television monitoring system, anti-gravity devices, and a computer-type news service." - Alison Lurie. "I have learned to regard fame as a will-o-the-wisp, which when caught, is not worth the possession; but to please a child is a sweet and lovely thing that warms one's heart and brings its own reward." - L. Frank Baum. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is an enchanting tale of adventure and self-discovery in a magical country. It is America's first and greatest fairy tale and is one of the most-read children's books. Its unforgettable characters and memorable adventures made it an instant classic, so much so that Baum wrote another thirteen books in the series. This is the first volume of a two-volume collection of all fourteen books and it will be a delight to any lover of the wonderful land of Oz. Features of this hardback edition: Contains the first seven books in the Oz series: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Marvelous Land of Oz, Ozma of Oz, Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz, The Road to Oz, The Emerald City of Oz, and The Patchwork Girl of Oz. The text is set in a well-spaced, crisp, large, modern 11-point font that children and grandparents will find easy to read. Each book contains the author's introduction. Frank Baum (1856-1919) was an American writer, best-known for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He wrote another thirteen books in the Oz series and over fifty-five novels. Baum wrote The Wonderful Wizard of Oz after failures as an actor, and proprietor of, successively a theater, a general store, a newspaper, and a trade magazine. Baum aimed to create an Americanized fairy tale in his Oz books, like Grimms' and Andersen's, but "in which the wonderment and joy are retained and the heartaches and nightmares are left out."
