The Wizard of Oz, popular abbreviation for the originally titled The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, is a children's novel written by L. Frank Baum originally published in 1900. One of the top classic books, the story follows the adventures of a girl named Dorothy in the Land of Oz. Thanks in part to the 1939 movie based on the book, The Wizard of Oz has become entrenched in American popular culture and led to Baum writing thirteen more Oz books. Historians, economists and literary scholars have examined and developed possible political interpretations of The Wizard of Oz but the majority of the reading public simply takes the story at face value.
