Lyman Frank Baum (/bɔːm/; May 15, 1856 – May 6, 1919) was an American author chiefly famous for his children's books, particularly The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its sequels. He wrote 14 novels in the Oz series, plus 41 other novels, 83 short stories, over 200 poems, and at least 42 scripts. He made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and the nascent medium of film; the 1939 adaptation of the first Oz book would become a landmark of 20th-century cinema.

But, (as Baum himself laments in the prefaces of many of his Oz books,) his little tyrants were only interested in hearing more Oz stories. So in 1913, he returned to writing about Oz, putting out both The Little Wizard Stories and The Patchwork Girl of Oz that year. The Little Wizard Stories were geared toward younger children and were originally published separately, similar in style to today’s Little Golden Books. The next year, they were published together as one volume.

In L. Frank Baum's Little Wizard Stories of Oz, he's collected a series of short stories, each of which . He was a magazine and children's book illustrator. Frank Baum's Little Wizard Stories of Oz, he's collected a series of short stories, each of which focus on a pair of the more popular characters of Oz. There's Jack Pumpkinhead and the Sawhorse. His illustrations were published numerous magazines including Collier's, Vanity Fair, The Saturday Evening Post, and The Ladies Home Journal.

Frank Baum first wrote these 6 short stories separately in their own volumes, with the title of each book bearing the names of two characters (see the 'Books of Oz' site). Later they were reprinted, but this time into 1 volume, with the former book titles now as chapters, shown here. The pictures are excellent.

Six tales present further adventures of Dorothy and Toto, Ozma, Tik-Tok, Jack Pumpkinhead, the Tin Woodman, and other characters from the Land of Oz
Because the six stories contained within are shorter and written for a younger audience, Little Wizard Stories of Oz is often overlooked by readers as they work their way through the Oz series. That's a shame. These stories are as wonderful as Baum's longer works and feature many of his most beloved characters. And if you have young children at home, these are wonderful stories to read aloud because they can be read in one sitting without exceeding the child's attention span. This is a must for any fan of Oz!

Found this nice collection of Short Stories set in the land of Oz through some friends. I have not read these before but fondly remember Mr. Baums longer books as a child. Although dated these stories still have the sense of whimsy and folksy wisdom that the series had. All the stories evoke the magic of Oz and while some show Mr. Baums attempts to teach lessons... Not all the lessons take (spoiler Dorothy doesnt like when the Wizard tries to teach her one). A delightful addition to this edition is the John Niell artwork wich tells a thousand additional words per story... All in all a nice way to compleat your collection and I suspect a nice way to add a few new cherished stories to bedtime.

This is a wonderful collection of modern fairy tales. Baum wrote them to Herald his return to writing the Oz books after leaving Oz two years before. And such a return, Neill the artist of Oz gave the reader full color pictures. Baum wrote short stories for younger readers who were given more details about Oz. Eltamin gave us another marvelous reproduction of Baum' s and Neil's stories. The illustrations burst off the page abounding in color. Baum's words are easy to read and move the stories along. Also Eltamin gave another affordable blast from the past, taking classics in to our modern age. Again another thanks

L. Frank Baum first wrote these 6 short stories separately in their own volumes, with the title of each book bearing the names of two characters (see the 'Books of Oz' site). Later they were reprinted, but this time into 1 volume, with the former book titles now as chapters, shown here.
I bought this book along with Roger S. Baum's "Dorothy of Oz" book (see my review) and Greg Hildebrandt's (abridged) illustrated edition of "the Wonderful Wizard of Oz" (I would like to review that).
The pictures are excellent. The chapter-title images are black-and-white, and the rest of the pictures are in full-page colour, sometimes taking over two pages. I liked how the Lion was drawn walking on 2 legs and once wearing a pair glasses on a string. The following chapters (once individual book titles) are as follows:
'The Cowardly Lion and the Hungry Tiger' are tired of constantly being known for their cowardliness/hunger and therefore not being feared, so they decide to go out and make themselves be feared. But Tiger refuses to eat a baby who has lost its mother, and Lion refuses to hurt a mother who hurts herself while trying to save her baby, so they change their minds.
'Little Dorothy and Toto' take a walk through Oz (despite the Wizard's disapproval of concern) and result in getting captured by the Giant Crinklink and are taken to his castle. Toto saves Dorothy and reunites with the Wizard.
'Tik-Tok and the Nome King'. Tik-Tok's machinery needs a few extra springs and the Wizard suggests for him to go to the Nome King, who unfortunately is in a bad mood and accidently destroys Tik-Tok. But Kaliko, the Chief Steward, fixes Tik-Tok up. His reappearance scares the Nome King (that was funny!), but Tik-Tok explains the situation and he returns to Oz, with jewels for Princess Ozma by the Nome King.
'Ozma and the Little Wizard' go through Oz making sure everything is fine, and come upon three mischievous Imps (named Olite, Udent and Ertinent) who are constantly causing trouble. The Imps take on enchanted forms and constantly attack Ozma and Wizard, until he overpowers them, with a plan to stop them from making further trouble.
'Jack Pumpkinhead and the Saw-Horse' are sent by Ozma to rescue 2 children lost in a forest. They find the children, but the Squirrel King refuses to let them go. As Jack sets the children free he looses his head, but the Saw-Horse manages to get them out and the Wizard gives Jack a new pumpkinhead.
'The Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman' ride in a little boat along a forest stream, but Nick Chopper falls into the bottom of the sea, so Scarecrow does whatever he can to get his friend out, even with the help of some mischievous crows. Once they're out of the water, the Wizard appears to give them a helping hand.
I found the story of the Lion and the Tiger very helpful because it made me realize and understand the Lion's "Cowardly" term, as many times I wondered why afterwards he couldn't be called the 'Courageous Lion'. I loved reading these adventures and was amused by the book itself because true to its "Little" title, this book is published in a size which is smaller than the other Oz Books of Wonder, AND the Wizard himself appears in almost all 6 Stories (thus the 'Little Wizard' title).
However there are a few mistakes: the Lion has a red bow instead of blue and Ozma's gown changes from sleeveless to long sleeves. Also, the Tin Woodman still manages to talk even when he's rusted at the bottom of the water. It should also be noted, that since these stories were first published as 6 short books, they of course had different covers than now shown (which can also be seen in the 'Oz Project; Books of Oz' Site). I would have liked (and wished) to see the original book covers reprinted here as full-colour chapter title pages before the story begins on the next page or as the endpapers. In this book, the endpapers of the Scarecrow riding Lion's back and Tin Woodman on Tiger's back are orginially from 'the Patchwork Girl of Oz', but without the orginal background with a castle.
Another good thing about this book was the Afterward saying what makes the next book, "the Patchwork Girl of Oz" so worth reading (which I would like to get soon).

Baum, also known as Lyman (1856-1919) rewrote many of the Oz tales for children. This volume contains six tales:

The Cowardly Lion and the Hungry Tiger
Little Dorothy and Toto
Tiktok and the Nome King
Ozma and the Little Wizard
Jack Pumpinghead and the Sawhorse
The Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman

In the first tale, for example, the Lion and Tiger stand as guards for the princess of Oz, but there is no need for guards, for every one acts nicely in Oz. The two tell one another that they are tired of this job because "no one pays attention to us." The tigar says it wants to leave this job and go off and eat fat babies. The lion wants to tear people into chop suey. The two think that this will gain the people's attention and cause the people to fear them. They leave the palace and find a fat baby who is lost. She is looking for her mother. Her mother rushes up to the baby, falls, and hurts her head. Will the tiger eat the fat baby? will the lion tear up the mother? what kind of reputation will the two have after this adventure? will they be satisfied?

The stories are written in simple English and they contain moral lessons for children.

Designed to whet the appetite of readers that had accepted the (premature) demise of the Oz series, this omnibus of short stories feels strangely to speak to a younger child than the series as a whole. They are fun stories, if a little forgettable. Each features a pair of characters.

A good book of further adventures in OZ.

I had to delete this book & all in this series from my Kindle...far too boring.
