The Land of Oz

Something new and exciting to check out...

The Famous Forty Canon consists of the forty original Oz books published by the Reilly & Lee company of Chicago (the first book was originally published by George M. Hill, and Reilly & Britton was the company's name through 1919).

These original forty titles span the years 1900 through 1963 and five writers - the most prolific ones being Lyman Frank Baum (of course), the discoverer and then "Royal Historian" of Oz; and his immediate successor, Ruth Plumly Thompson. Between them, they related 33 tales from Oz (14 by LFB and 19 by RPT). Also, with the exceptions of the very first Oz tale [The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900)] and the final four, the other 35 Oz tales were all illustrated to perfection by John R. Neill.

Browse the books below... see the cover, glance the synopses, read the English online texts (where available) or even the Japanese or Esperanto text (which actually includes John R. Neill's illustrations!) [want to know more about Esperanto?]. I have listed all where available (if you know of others, please e-mail me!).

Latest Update

FAMOUS Rodrigo Santoro breaks tooth embossing novel Globe and dentist is called with urgency

rodrigo

The Brazilian actor Rodrigo Santoro went back to work in Brazil with an astronomical salary that has caused envy to the highest echelon of the Globe. While recording a scene for the novel in question, which will be called ‘ old Chico ‘ and will appear in prime time, he ended up breaking a tooth.

The information comes from Fefito, columnist of the newspaper ‘ Now ‘.

The accident would have happened in a city in the interior of Bahia and because of the setback, a Dentist Melbourne had to be called in a hurry for the site, which is about 60 km from Salvador. A prosthesis would have been deployed to the actor.

“Imagine all day recording and now look where I went? In a dentist’s Chair, “said he in Snapchat.

For about 20 chapters, it is speculated that the actor will receive 300,000 R$.

Toto, the dog from “The Wizard of Oz”

Contrary to popular belief, the small black terrier named Toto in “The Wizard of Oz” , his real name was Terry and was a bitch. His coach was Carl Spitz . Spitz Terry began training in 1933, when she was barely a year old. Its owner had left Terry Spitz care for your workout, but never returned to pick it up. Terry appeared in 15 films. His first appearance was in “Ready For Love” in 1934. That same year, Terry appeared with Shirley Temple in “Bright Eyes” , playing the role of “Rags”. In 1938, Terry was the casting for the role of Dorothy Dog in the Wizard of Oz. Terry was hired immediately. He began to live for two weeks at the home of Judy Garland. Judy wanted to adopt to Terry after the filming of the movie, but Carl Spitz refused.

Terry received a salary of $ 125 a week, twice charged the Dwarves (Munchkins), that appeared in the film. But life in the movies is not always glamorous. He sprained foot after being accidentally stepped on by one of the guards of the evil witch. But Terry recovered and returned a few weeks later to finish his scenes. After his immortal role as Toto, Terry appeared in other films. In 1942, he was three years after “The Wizard of Oz” officially changed the name to Toto and he has signs of hip dysplasia in dogs. Terry died in 1945 at the age of 13 years. She was buried in the pet cemetery Carl Spitz residence. Oddly enough his character from The Wizard of Oz is in more scenes than Dorothy. Yes, even when Judy Garland sings out “Over the Rainbow”.
