Oz Archive

Following the Yellow Brick Road

This page contains the archive of my reviews for the Wizard of Oz books written by L Frank Baum.  As I post each review, the corresponding link below will “go live”.  Along with the Oz books, there are also reviews of several of Baum’s other non-Oz works as well as some adapted movies and comics based on the Baum books.

Inspired by the Land of Oz

Following the Yellow Brick Road
Besides the Oz books, Baum was a very prolific children’s lit writer. He penned hundreds of other books and poetry collections under various pseudonyms. I’ll occasionally read some of these other non-Oz works and I’ll put them under the above banner.

  1. Just thought I would let you know, after a combination of seeing your posts about the Wizard of Oz books, seeing the newest Oz movie and re-watching the original Wizard of Oz, and Return to Oz, I am embarking on my own reading of the 14 Oz books. I actually found a collection that has the original 14 plus the additional books by other authors. I don’t know if I will delve into those, but I wanted to thank you for bringing my attention to this universe waiting for me to delve into.

    • Thank you so much for dropping me this note. I’m very glad you enjoyed this series and it makes me happy that it got you reading the books.

      I myself will probably delve into the other Oz books by Ruth Plumly-Thompson and even some of the non-Oz Baum books. So as I continue down that road, I plan on updating this section with more reviews.

      Stay tuned!
