The Suprising Adventures Of The Magical Monarch Of Mo And His People (Mobi Classics)
EUR€1.06New Kobo Germany
The Magical Monarch of Mo (1898) is the first full-length children's fantasy book by L. Frank Baum. Originally published in 1899 as A New Wonderland, the book was reissued in 1903 with a new title in order to capitalize upon the alliterative title of Baum's successful The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. It is illustrated by Frank Ver Beck. Mo is much more of a nonsense book than Oz, bringing to mind Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which is probably what the original title referred to. Each chapter is a different story, unlike Baum's other books, which are full length stories. They do, however have a general throughline, and can be seen as an episodic novel.
