Who’s Who In Oz
ìThe Happiest Whoís Who Ever Writtenî
-Original advertising slogan for book in 1954.
"Whoís Who in Oz", originally published in the 1950ís, is an illustrated index of nearly every
character that ever appeared in the first 39 Oz books.
"Whoís Who in Oz" is wonderful in its scope and reach; author, Jack Snow, did a remarkable job
gathering these characters together and his descriptions or as he calls them ì informal
introductions to over six hundred and thirty Oz characters- people, animals, and creatures- with
hints on the parts they play in the thirty-nine Oz booksî show a foremost Oz scholar, and
excellent writer himself, at work. Each character description also has a reference telling you the
first page on which this character appeared, and in which Oz book.
There are many black and white illustrations, by John R. Neill, Frank Kramer and ìDirkî, that
give us a delightful glimpse into the truly amazing, imaginative world of Oz.
