Revisiting Royal Book

Clover Press will publish a new edition of The Royal Book of Oz by Ruth Plumly Thompson, the first book in the Oz series to be written after the death of series creator L. Frank Baum. This brand new edition will feature brand new illustrations by Sara Richard. It will also contain an afterword by me.

My afterword discusses how Thompson got the job as successor to L. Frank Baum and the publisher's ruse to ease the transition to the new "Royal Historian of Oz."

A Kickstarter Campaign is currently running to crowdfund Clover Press's publication of The Royal Book of Oz. Click here to access it and contribute. A lot of extras are available, depending on your contribution level.
