L. Frank Baum's original fourteen Oz novels create an imaginary world filled with fantastical creatures and pragmatic little girls.

I’ve no doubt many events played into my lifelong love for The Wizard of Oz. My mother would read the Oz books to me as a child.

Hello, and welcome to my first Red Room blog entry.  :-)

At the Damours readying to watch Wizard of Oz...in color!

 

I confess: I am able to mimic the Wicked Witch of the West much better than Glinda, the Good Witch of the North.

It was maybe 1949. Billy was the Bumpy Man. I was Ozma and my best friend Nancy was Dorothy. Whoever Jimmy was, I think we pulled him around the yard in the red wagon.

The first time I saw The Wizard of Oz, I was five years old. I was at my dad’s.

I thought Stephen King had slipped a cog when he had Roland, The Gunslinger, and his motley crew of travelers, come upon the Emerald City.

Interestingly enough, the Wizard of Oz was not one of those movies I saw as a child.

The Wizard of Oz was one of my favorite movies as a child,along with Gone With the Wind.I read the books of both of these movies as well.

L. Frank Baum's granddaughter lives in Manhattan Beach, California. As it turns out, her next-door neighbor was one very tall professional basketball player.
