The Visitors from Oz by L. Frank Baum. The complete text of Baum's 1904-1905 "Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land of Oz" comic page, and his 1905 book The Woggle-Bug Book, all in one volume. These are the complete adventures of the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, Jack Pumpkinhead, Sawhorse, Woggle-Bug, and Gump in the strange and distant land of America. They even visit Dorothy in Kansas. (These are not reproductions of the original comic pages, however. The stories have been reset and newly illustrated. This should not be confused with the 1961 picture book of the same name that was an adaptation of some of the "Queer Visitors" comics, nor the novel of the same name by Martin Gardner. Please note that this book contains some racial and ethnic stereotypes that were considered amusing to many in Baum's time, but are now badly outdated and offensive to some people today. Therefore, this book is not recommended for young children.)
