The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a children's novel written by L. Frank Baum and illustrated by W. W. Denslow. Originally published by the George M. Hill Company in Chicago on May 17, 1900, it has since been reprinted numerous times, most often under the name The Wizard of Oz, which is the name of both the 1902 stage play and the well-known 1939 film adaptation. The story chronicles the adventures of a young girl named Dorothy Gale in the Land of Oz, after being swept away from her Kansas farm home in a tornado. The novel is one of the best-known stories in American popular culture and has been widely translated. Its initial success, and the success of the popular 1902 Broadway musical which Baum adapted from his original story, led to Baum's writing thirteen more Oz books. The original book has been in the public domain in the US since 1956.


Mr. Kipling and Myka were asked to snag the book after it appeared at an auction. Apparently Agents had tried to get the book years ago but accidently opened the book, transporting them to Kansas (which Artie says is a downside to the book, but in all honesty it was never actually stated as one); when they went back to retrieve the book, it was gone. Now it resides in the Warehouse in a case so it doesn't open up by accident, and is place along side the rest of the fourteen books in The Oz series; of course there is a regular first edition of the book in the warehouse as well.
