5.0 out of 5 stars Back to Childhood 27 Dec 2012
By Jennifer R. M. Toplitz - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It's amazing how well the Oz books have aged, especially since Baum & Plumly were writing in very goodie-two-shoes kind of way. Still, these books encourage love and loyalty, truthfulness and kindness, consideration, bravery and good manners. All traits to be encouraged in young and old alike. The books fill in the gap between Dr Seus and the authors now writing for the tween years. Yes, in many ways they are old fashioned, but they have strong female characters (in their own way) and vivid imagery, it's not that surprising that they still are in print.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection 17 Jan 2013
By Richard Johnston - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This a very useful, cost effective way of getting the Oz books. It is well formatted and navigation through tje 17 books is easy and efficient. If you are using a Kindle App the various cover illustrations appear in full color but they are also attractive and clear in black and white--especially on the Paperwhite. Above all this anthology is enjoyable to read and for 17 novels the price is very competitive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful buy for Oz fans 6 April 2013
By flcharlie - Published on Amazon.com

Unlike one other Oz collection, this collection has both the Frank L. Baum books and the later books by Ruth Plumly Thompson. The original illustrations are a delight as well. Well worth having.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection - yes it really has all those books listed in it 11 Oct 2013
By Angel Eyes - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have purchased two collections, and am amazed to be able to buy so many of these great classic titles under one volume. The only improvement I would have would be to include more of the original artwork, and I would gladly pay more, and sacrifice storage for it. But yay! The books I read as children were so old and NOT well cared for, and rotting apart. This is a real pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Gets Old 26 July 2013
By AGoldin - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I bought all these books in paperback in the 1970s when they were first released by DelRay, and I still have those. They are still so much fun to read and because Mr. Baum was writing long before authors were urged to write specifically for certain age groups, the stories are not necessarily geared for children. He wrote for anyone and didn't restrict his vocabulary, so it doesn't feel like you're reading a "children's" book. The stories are incredibly inventive, the plots to some of the later ones having been suggested by his fans. All the books have an overarching theme of tolerance (very timely today), honesty, fairness, etc. In fact, tolerance for individuality and alternate lifestyles is such a prevalent theme, that I'm surprised Baum is not condemned by right-wing conservatives. These are WONDERFUL books that maybe I'll re-read again when I'm 80.

UPDATE: I just finished the entire thing and have to say my favorite ones are "The Emerald City of Oz" (wonderfully involved and complex plot with a touch of realism), and "Rinkitink in Oz." "Rinkitink" doesn't even take place in Oz and has no Oz characters until the very end. It shows that Baum could write more than "Oz stories" with the same characters. In fact, I thought it was a great story and that having Dorothy come in at the end sort of ruined it.

The first Ruth Plumly book left much to be desired, although her second one, the last in this series, was a vast improvement. Still, her sense of fantasy was not grounded in the same reality that Baum's was; she gets a little...weird. Like the "runaway country" character, an enormous piece of land, with legs, and lakes for eyes, that runs around abducting people to colonize it. She also lacks Baum's sense of humor and sense of irony. You won't be missing anything if you just read the first 14 full Baum books. Enjoy!
