The "Wonderful Wizard of Oz" is the quintessential American fairy tale, but it is also a controversial children's book. This annoted edition illuminates the numerous contemporary references, provides character sources, and explains the actual meaning of the word "Oz." A facsimile of the rare 1900 first edition appears with the original drawings by W.W. Denslow, as well as 25 previously unpublished illustrations. There is a bibliography of L. Frank Baum's published work, every notable "Oz" edition and the stage and cinematic productions from 1939's "The Wizard of Oz," to the 1974 Broadway hit "The Wiz."
