Order of Oz Books
Oz is a fantasy franchise created by American author L. Frank Baum that spans various mediums, including books, movies, stageplays, video games, comic books and more. The franchise was created with the L. Frank Baum novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, which was adapted to the 1939 classic film The Wizard of Oz. In it, a young girl named Dorothy Gale is sent into the Land of Oz thanks to a tornado, where she must seek out the Wizard of Oz to get her home. Along the way, she meets up with Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion, who accompany her on her quest. The film is among the best known films of all-time.
The Oz series began in 1900 with the novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (aka The Wizard of Oz). The final novel written by L. Frank Baum was Glinda of Oz (1920), but new sequels and prequels are being added to the series as recently as 2006, including a few by Baum’s great grandson, Roger S. Baum. Below is a list of L. Frank Baum’s Oz books in order of when they were originally published (which is also their chronological order):
