Welcome to my blog, featuring various pieces from my collection of Oz books, artwork and memorabilia!

A number of Reilly & Britton books contain ads for the Oz series as well as other L. Frank Baum titles - usually at the back of the book. These ads can be fun to read, both for the information given, and the selling points that are called out.
These particular ads are from a couple different printings of Children's Stories That Never Grow Old. Who knew that the point of the Oz Toy Book was "to keep fingers busy and hearts happy"? I also like that the Twinkle Tales have been "adopted by many school boards for supplemental reading".
