About the Author

L. Frank Baum was born in 1856 in Chittenango, New York. In 1900, he published The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and the book was an instant hit. Often called America's first modern fairy tale, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has been made into countless movies, TV shows, theatrical plays, and musicals. Before he died in 1919, Baum wrote thirteen other Oz books.

Martin Gardner (1914-2010) is regarded as one of the world's leading experts on Lewis Carroll and his work. The author of more than a hundred books, he wrote the Mathematical Games column for Scientific American for twenty-five years and has been hailed by Douglas Hofstadter as one of the great intellects produced in this country in this century.
William Wallace Denslow (1856 - 1915), professionally W. W. Denslow, was an American illustrator and caricaturist remembered for his work in collaboration with author L. Frank Baum, especially his illustrations of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Michael Patrick Hearn has written for the New York Times, The Nation, and many other publications. His books include From the Silver Age to Stalin: Russian Children's Book Illustration and The Porcelain Cat; he has edited The Victorian Fairy Tale Book, The Annotated Wizard of Oz, The Annotated Christmas Carol, and The Annotated Huckleberry Finn. Hearn lives in New York City.
