A sort of third wheel to the Oz collection, Wonder Tales acts as the third volume. It does not contain Oz stories, but does contain some other fantastic work by Baum, including some Button-Bright stories (and, if you've read the Oz chronicles, you would know that Button-Bright becomes a denizen).

The stories, some of which have crossovers in the Oz series, are all delightful. They're written for children, but any adult could enjoy them as well (especially since they were written before every popular book had to have a 4th grade reading level). The prose, while light-hearted and fun may challenge a reader used to having easy to swallow words and a pre-digested plot. Though, it's worlds easier to understand than something written by Joyce.

If you're looking to complete your collection of Baum works, this is definitely a needed addition. If you want a collection of stories that can be read and enjoyed by children and adults alike, I recommend you pick up this book. ( )
