Perhaps I should admit on the title page that this book is "By L. FrankBaum and his correspondents," for I have used many suggestions conveyedto me in letters from children. Once on a time I really imagined myself"an author of fairy tales," but now I am merely an editor or privatesecretary for a host of youngsters whose ideas I am requested to weaveinto the thread of my stories.
These ideas are often clever. They are also logical and interesting. SoI have used them whenever I could find an opportunity, and it is butjust that I acknowledge my indebtedness to my little friends.
My, what imaginations these children have developed! Sometimes I amfairly astounded by their daring and genius. There will be no lack offairy-tale authors in the future, I am sure. My readers have told mewhat to do with Dorothy, and Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, and I have obeyedtheir mandates. They have also given me a variety of subjects to writeabout in the future: enough, in fact, to keep me busy for some time. Iam very proud of this alliance. Children love these stories becausechildren have helped to create them. My readers know what they want andrealize that I try to please them. The result is very satisfactory tothe publishers, to me, and (I am quite sure) to the children.
I hope, my dears, it will be a long time before we are obliged todissolve partnership.
