The Little Wizard Stories of Oz contains six thrilling short stories based on characters from the Wizard of Oz. L. Frank Baum had announced to the world that he was done writing Oz books. Inundated with letters from disappointed children Baum decided to write short stories in the hopes that this would mollify his legions of disappointed fans. These stories explore more deeply many of the characters we've come to know and love-- Jack Pumkinhead, The Cowardly Lion, The Hungry Tiger, The Scarecrow, The Tin Woodman, and even the Wizard of Oz himself. This lavishly illustrated edition has more than forty of John R. Neill's whimsical drawings.
