On the 101st anniversary of L. Frank Baum's death...

L. Frank Baum, author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and numerous sequels, died on this day in 1919. He was buried in Glendale's Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery. His final book, Glinda of Oz, was published posthumously on 10th July 1920,

Almost 98 years to the day that Baum died, I completed The Wicked Wizard of Oz, the second in the ACE Gamebooks series.

Hunted by the Wicked Witch of the West's winged monkeys and joined by her friends - the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Lion - Dorothy Gale sets off for the Emerald City.

Surrounded by enemies on all sides, will you uncover the secrets of The Wicked Wizard of Oz?

YOU decide which route to take, which perils to risk, and which of Oz's strange denizens to fight. But be warned - whether you succeed in your quest or meet a dire end, somewhere over the rainbow, will be down to the choices YOU make.

Are you ready to return to Oz?
