Author's Note

After the publication of ”The Wonderful Wizard of OZ” I began to receiveletters from children, telling me of their pleasure in reading the story andasking me to ”write something more” about the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman.At first I considered these little letters, frank and earnest though theywere, in the light of pretty compliments; but the letters continued to comeduring succeeding months, and even years.

Finally I promised one little girl, who made a long journey to see me andprefer her request,--and she is a ”Dorothy,” by the way--that when athousand little girls had written me a thousand little letters asking forthe Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman I would write the book, Either littleDorothy was a fairy in disguise, and waved her magic wand, or the success ofthe stage production of ”The Wizard of OZ” made new friends for the story,For the thousand letters reached their destination long since--and manymore followed them.

And now, although pleading guilty to long delay, I have kept my promise inthis book.


Chicago, June, 1904
