Although remembered mainly for illustrating the original Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1900, William Wallace Denslow (1856-1915) was America's preeminent children's book illustrator at that time. He knew how to entertain children and his series of Denslow's Picture Books for Children (1903-4), retelling stories such as Humpty Dumpty, The Three Bears and Old Mother Hubbard, were a runaway success. This Dover edition reprints the first nine Picture Books, with an introduction by Michael Patrick Hearn.
