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 The Woggle-Bug Book. Yes, these are the complete adventures of the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, Jack Pumpkinhead, Sawhorse, Waggle-Bug, and Gump in the strange and distant land of America. They even visit Santa Claus, and the Gump has a race with the reindeer.
