To the best of our knowledge, all texts offered here are in public domain. (If you have proof that some are not, please let us know!) Most of these books are also in print. As useful as the internet is, nothing compares to relaxing with a good book. Although you can read the books here, we think you should also get a printed copy.
We must also note that some of these stories contain language that might be considered as racial slurs today. In the interest of authenticity, we have not altered these parts, nor do they reflect the opinions of Dorothy and Ozma Productions.
At the bottom, there's links to Oz stories by the webmaster.
The series by L. Frank Baum...
(1902) The life story of Santa Claus and how he came to be the immortal giver of gifts to children. Occurs in the very early history of the continent on which Oz is found. (Note: This book originally mentioned the Valley of Phunniland, which originated in "A New Wonderland." This book was later edited into "The Magical Monarch of Mo," so we have changed "Phunniland" to "Mo." In addition, the Gnome King has become the Nome King.)

(1900) The very first Oz story, detailing Dorothy's first adventure in Oz.
