With all Baum had to look forward to that year, it may seem a little surprising that in Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz , he chose to look back, tying up the original, eponymous loose end from his original breakout novel. Perhaps, though, he was already feeling the strain, for as he said in the note to his readers, “It’s no use . . the children won’t let me stop telling tales of the Land of Oz. I know lots of other stories, and I hope to tell them, some time or another…”

I’m ashamed to say I didn’t read this book in the fancy Books of Wonder edition you sent me, Sarah, says Nick. I have so much nostalgia attached to my original Del Rey edition. It actually has a little “This book belongs to…’ where I have written somewhat clumsily, “Nicholas Campbell, the biggest Oz maniac in Britain.” I vividly remember the shock and delight at discovering this book in the UK, presented so authoritatively with that bizarre cover. Do you remember reading Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz  as a child?

I do, Sarah replies.   A friend of my mother’s – a librarian – gave me a whole bundle of the Del Rey editions when I was quite small. She gave them to me at a pizza restaurant, I remember, one at a time. Whenever I left the table, I’d come back and there would be another book. It quickly became a game; I couldn’t refill my drink fast enough! And I remember specifically the very last one was Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz . It certainly sticks in my mind, and I couldn’t have been more than 7 or 8 years old.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its thirteen sequels have enchanted audiences since their publication in the early twentieth century. Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz is the fourth novel in the Oz series, and was adapted into an eight-issue comic miniseries for Marvel Comics.
