Wizard of oz

  1. 1. TO MY READERS The Wizard of OzFolklore, legends, myths and fairy tales have followed childhoodthrough the ages, for every healthy youngster has a wholesomeand instinctive love for stories fantastic, marvelous andmanifestly unreal. The winged fairies of Grimm and Andersenhave brought more happiness to childish hearts than all otherhuman creations.
  2. 2. TO MY READERS The Wizard of Oz Con’tYet the old time fairy tale, having served for generations,may now be classed as "historical" in the childrenslibrary; for the time has come for a series of newer"wonder tales" in which the stereotyped genie, dwarf andfairy are eliminated, together with all the horrible andblood-curdling incidents devised by their authors topoint a fearsome moral to each tale. Modern educationincludes morality; therefore the modern child seeks onlyentertainment in its wonder tales and gladly dispenseswith all disagreeable incident.
  3. 3. TO MY READERS The Wizard of Oz Con’tHaving this thought in mind, the story of "The WonderfulWizard of Oz" was written solely to please children oftoday. It aspires to being a modernized fairy tale, in whicthe wonderment and joy are retained and the heartachesand nightmares are left out.-L. Frank BaumChicago, April, 1900.
  4. 4. To My Readers The Tin Woodman of OzI think I am justified in promising thatthere will be some astonishingrevelations about the Magic of Oz in mybook for 1919. Always your loving and gratefulfriend, L. Frank Baum Royal historian of Oz “Ozcot” at Hollywood in California 1918
