Welcome to Curiozities By The Book!

Over 100 years after the publication of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, L. Frank Baum's "wonder tales" continue to be re-told again and again not only through words in books, but also in the plethora of merchandise inspired by America's most beloved fairyland.

In order to better accommodate the mounting interest in the original Oz stories, I felt the time had come to start a companion to The Curiozity Corner. As the tag line implies, this blog will cover book related merchandise and other assorted miscellaneoz Baumian delights.

Those familiar with The Curiozity Corner, I hope you'll find Curiozities By The Book enjoyable and to any newbies, I'm glad you've found me!
