181 pages1 hour


With 94 illustrations, by the author of the Wizard of Oz. According to Wikipedia: "The Surprising Adventures of the Magical Monarch of Mo and His People (copyright registered 17 June 1896) is the first full-length children's fantasy book by L. Frank Baum. Originally published in 1899 as A New Wonderland, Being the First Account Ever Printed of the Beautiful Valley, and the Wonderful Adventures of Its Inhabitants, the book was reissued in 1903 with a new title in order to capitalize upon the alliterative title of Baum's successful The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The book is only slightly altered--Mo is called Phunniland or Phunnyland, but aside from the last paragraph of the first chapter, they are essentially the same book... Lyman Frank Baum (1856 – 1919) was an American author, poet, playwright, actor and independent filmmaker, best known today as the creator, along with illustrator W. W. Denslow, of one of the most popular books in American children's literature, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, better known now as simply The Wizard of Oz."
