About the Author

Lyamn Frank Baum (1856-1919) was schrijver, journalist, dichter, acteur en film-maker. Baum trouwde in 1882 met de feministe Maud Cage, met wie hij vier kinderen kreeg. De boeken Mother Goose in Prose (1897) en Father Goose, His Book (1899) zijn werken die in meer of mindere mate bekend zijn geworden tijdens het leven van Baum, maar zijn definitieve doorbraak kwam met het boek The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1900 in Nederland beter bekend als De Grote Tovenaar van Oz in de Nederlandse vertaling van Hendrik Scholte uit 1940. In 1904 publiceerde Baum zijn eerste succesvolle vervolg getiteld The Marvelous Land of Oz, in totaal zouden er zo'n 17 Oz boeken verschijnen van zijn hand. Deze Oz boeken worden vertaald door Jeroen van Luiken-Bakker en door AhvΓ΄ Braiths gepubliceerd.

Ruth Plumly Thompson (1891 - 1976) was an American writer of children's stories, best known for writing many novels placed in Oz, the fictional land of L. Frank Baum's classic children's novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its sequels. An avid reader of Baum's books and a lifelong children's writer, Thompson was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and began her writing career in 1914 when she took a job with the Philadelphia Public Ledger; she wrote a weekly children's column for the newspaper. She had already published her first children's book, The Perhappsy Chaps, and her second, The Princess of Cozytown, was pending publication when William Lee, vice president of Baum's publisher Reilly & Lee, solicited Thompson to continue the Oz series. (Rumors among fans that Thompson was Baum's niece were untrue.) Between 1921 and 1939, she wrote one Oz book a year.
