I came across my old L. Frank Baum books at my parents house over Christmas. I love the vivid and fantastical covers. One of my favorite characters was Ozma. While I was reading the series, Ozma and Dorothy were always close to my age, and I enjoyed that they were full of adventure and mischief. [Apparently the Lambertville Library has the entire text of Ozma of Oz on their website.
If you don’t have time to read the whole book, just look at a few of the amazing illustrations by John R. Neill!]
