So... you thought our Baum and Thompson only wrote about Oz? Thought Denslow and Neill only illustrated Oz? Oh... for shame... there are a plethora of other, non-Oz tales and illustrations out there for you to enjoy.

Below you find all I can find on what I call "Extracurricular Literary Oz" (or "What Our Royal Historians Do When They're Not Doing Oz")... and by no means is the list even close to being complete or all-inclusive at this point. Please bear with me.... Some titles are currently available now.

"Mother Goose in Prose" [1897]

Illustrated by Maxfield Parrish.
Artwork coming soon.

Baum's first book for children &
Parrish's first book illustrations!

[NOTE: Click here to see an interesting sketch which comes from a page in Parrish's chemistry notebook, 1890, which he used to illustrate a chemistry experiment for a Prof. Lyman Beecher Hall. This sketch eventually inspired art for Lyman Frank Baum's "Mother Goose in Prose" (an eerie "Lyman" coincidence).]

"Pictures From The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" [1902]

Okay, so this title is "Oz" – but this title is the one that contributed to the major rift between Denslow and Baum, and subsequently is one of the reasons why Denslow was not the illustrator for future Oz tales. That privilege, as you know, went to John R. Neill.
