About the Author:

L. Frank Baum (1856–1919) was an American author of books, short stories, and poetry. He is best known for writing The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and thirteen other books about the Land of Oz. His books have been adapted for stage and screen and continue to be popular today.

Michael Hague is the acclaimed illustrator of dozens of books for children, many of which he also wrote or adapted. His books include The Secret Garden, The Little Mermaid, The Wizard of Oz, and The Wind in the Willows, as well as several books by his wife, Kathleen, including Numbears, Ten Little Bears, and the best-selling Alphabears. Michael trained at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles and after working for Hallmark and Current began to illustrate his own books more than 40 years ago. His illustrations have received much critical praise and many of his books are regarded as classics. Recently, twenty-five of his best-loved picture books, treasuries, and illustrated novels were reissued in beautiful new editions as part of the Michael Hague Signature Classics series. Michael lives with his wife in Colorado Springs.
