All Things Oz is editor Linda Sunshine's "whirlwind tour" of Oz, L. Frank Baum's literary fairyland. She teamed up with Oz memorabilia collector Willard Carroll to put together a sampling of Baum's writings, surrounded by images from Carroll's collection that provides a delightful introduction to new readers and wonderful memories for loyal fans.

Sunshine scoured all 13 of Baum's Oz novels as well as his short stories for passages that exemplify the wit and wisdom that has endeared these books to readers for over 100 years. Each page is in full color with illustrations of Oz and its citizens from all over the world. The result is a beautiful book in word and image that is truly a delight for anyone interested in learning about Oz.
