Jul 24, Joan rated it really liked it Shelves: bio-and-autobiography , j-books , american-history , history , nonfiction , nonfiction-for-grades , read-in Krull never does anything less than excellent work. This was no exception. I enjoyed how she and Hawkes combined to show hints of where various Oz characters came from. The story of Baum's life was interesting. The illustrations were fantastic. While not a deep book, since meant for early grades, it covers the essence of his life, and lauds what a wonderful family man Baum was.
Which led to his greatest success, the Oz books. He would tell stories to his kids who brought along friends to hear th Krull never does anything less than excellent work.profruits.ru/js/lowndes/agentstvo-znakomstv-yoshkar-ola.php
He would tell stories to his kids who brought along friends to hear them as well. He learnt from the experience what kids, love and don't love romance was a no-no! While he wrote an enormous amount, certainly his legacy are the Oz titles. I need to put them on my list to read since I don't think I've read them all.
Another well done title by Krull. Come to think of it, I need to put her books on the to read list as well. She is a local San Diego author, and probably the best known local author. Or should be since people tend to not know nonfiction authors unless adult unfortunately. I always felt the way to approach learning a new field is to start with the children titles. They assume that children know nothing about the subject and they really explain everything, if on a child level.
Mar 18, Rebecca rated it really liked it Recommends it for: 2nd grade and up. Shelves: children-s-lit , nonfiction , biography , picture-books. Fascinating picture book biography of L. I didn't know any of his life story: his many failed business attempts, the fact that he didn't publish "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" until he was age 44 with four children, or how he tried to combine writing with EVERY business venture he tried even raising chickens. The optimist in me loves that he kept his imaginative life lively throughout his hardships, and that the book which brought him success is the one that drew upon his loves and e Fascinating picture book biography of L.
The optimist in me loves that he kept his imaginative life lively throughout his hardships, and that the book which brought him success is the one that drew upon his loves and experiences imagining live scarecrows as a child; seeing Chicago's White City as an adult; building a metal man as a window decorator; perfecting his skills as an oral storyteller in front of the neighborhood children. The academic in me loves that he wrote something for children that hadn't been done before -- "a beautifully illustrated, original American novel written to amuse children. There was nothing else like it.
Favorite quotes: "Everything was alive to him, even objects. Jul 21, Rachel rated it liked it Shelves: picture-books , biography-and-memoirs , children. Being a huge L. Frank Baum fan, I really wanted to read this biography. Kevin Hawkes did a fantastic job with the illustration, esp the end pages and the mini-drawings of Ozian characters at the bottom of every 2 pages.
The story just seemed a bit disjointed, like the author just grabbed a bunch of facts about Baum and threw them together to make a story. Baum had a large number of failed business ventures before he finally made it big with the publishing of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" in , Being a huge L.
Baum had a large number of failed business ventures before he finally made it big with the publishing of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" in , and from there he because more prosperous and led a more comfortable life. I was glad the author included the storyteller's note in the back, which I thought gave a more complete view of Baum's life. I liked that he was a supporter of the women's rights movement and his own mother-in-law was famous for helping Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B.
Anthony found the National Woman Suffrage Association. The author also has a short list of sources she used and his bibliography of Oz books. Feb 16, Carol Irvin rated it really liked it.

Loved this children's book about Frank Baum! Now I have to read an adult book about him. Mar 08, Andrew rated it really liked it Shelves: genre-non-fic-juvenile-biography , march , author-l-frank-baum. I thought I knew everything about Oz. I was wrong. This great look into the story of L. Frank Baum shares his life's up's and down's, and how he became known as the master of the American Fairytale through his Oz books.
Many of the elements of Oz, like authors before him, reflected on the society he grew up in: Chicago was his Emerald City, or how he worked in a hardware store and had made a display of a tin-man. Did you know that he was a terrible salesman, a terrible actor, a terrible writer, I thought I knew everything about Oz. Did you know that he was a terrible salesman, a terrible actor, a terrible writer, and terrible with finances sounds like me?
However, he was big into travel and fairytales, and did you know that he created 14 OZ books, which are part of the 70 Children's Books that he published in his life. Check out his very interesting and unique story. I didn't realize I had so much in common with an author whose work I respect so much. Aug 22, Krista the Krazy Kataloguer rated it really liked it Shelves: read-childrens-books , read-biography , read-authors-illustrators. First, I'll say that there were 2 things I didn't like about this book.
First, on the second 2-page spread, Krull puts down the name Lyman: "No one dared call him Lyman--who wouldn't hate that name? Krull might better have simply said that Baum didn't like his first name. Second, she kept inserting comments in parentheses throughout the text, which broke it up and annoyed me. Having said that, however, I really e First, I'll say that there were 2 things I didn't like about this book. Having said that, however, I really enjoyed the book. Not only did Krull bring out a lot of the interesting and unusual occupations that Baum tried in his life, but she brought out some of his quirky personality.
Baum was born in Chittenango, NY, not far from where I live. They still hold an Oz festival every year there. I hadn't realized, however, that his wife was the daughter of Matilda Joslyn Gage, a feminist from the Syracuse area.

I must read an adult biography of him to find out how they met. A most interesting man. Dec 05, Kristen rated it really liked it Shelves: childrens , nonfiction , biography. I love just about anything by Kathleen Krull, and this is yet another great, interesting biography by a master.
My favorite part is that L. Frank Baum kept a record of all his rejections from publishers in a book he called his Record of Failure. I hear ya, Frank. Feb 13, babyhippoface rated it really liked it Shelves: biographical-ish , kids-non-fiction , kids-picture-books , historical.

I would have liked to have known Frank Baum. He did a little bit of everything in his life, and stayed upbeat while he lost job after job. I enjoyed seeing where pieces of Oz came from. Dec 08, Alex DK rated it really liked it Shelves: 52books Great biography of L. Read aloud to my kids after reading the Wizard of Oz. Nov 27, James rated it really liked it. The story of L. Frank Baum, author best known for creating Oz and its many characters, had an interesting life. This book effectively covers much of it in a kid friendly, engaging method.
It was one that my daughter selected in the library because she wanted to know more about the author who created Oz. The book is richly illustrated and the narrative is well constructed. Born into some manner of wealth, he had privilege but l The story of L. Born into some manner of wealth, he had privilege but lacked a path he felt comfortable pursuing as he grew older. He never stopped trying, which is an important lesson for young readers and allows easy comparison to more modern authors such as how other authors such as Rowling struggled before creating popular fantasy worlds.
The book is well done if not flawless and sheds light on the life of an author well known but rarely examined. My daughter enjoyed it and my wife encouraged me to read it as well. A solid, factual, and engaging examination masquerading as a great introduction to biographies of key authors.
