L. Frank Baum: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

By Cindy Grigg
1     One evening in 1899, a father was telling his children and their friends a story. It was about a young girl. Her name was Dorothy. She lived in Kansas. A tornado came and swept up Dorothy's house while she was in it! When the house came down out of the sky, it landed in a magical place. Dorothy met a talking scarecrow there. She met a tin woodsman. She met a not-very-brave lion. She met little people who were called "Munchkins."
 
2     One of the children who was listening asked the name of the magical land. The storyteller couldn't think of a name. There was a filing cabinet in the room. The cabinet had drawers that were labeled. The first drawer was labeled "A-N." The second drawer gave him an idea. It was labeled "O-Z." The storyteller named L. Frank Baum called his magical land "Oz."
 
3     L. Frank Baum was born on May 15, 1856. His full name was Lyman Frank Baum. He didn't like his first name and always went by Frank. He was a frail, sickly child. He had to spend a lot of his childhood in bed. He liked to daydream. He started writing at an early age. He had a knack for storytelling. For a time, he owned a general store. Children would gather there in the afternoons, begging him to tell them a story.
