The Magical Monarch of Mo by L. Frank Baum

The Magical Monarch of Mo is the first children book L. Frank Baum ever wrote. It was published at the beginning of the twentieth century, just some time after The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was released. Somehow, the land of Mo, Baum’s first creation, was unfairly overshadowed by the great success of Oz. The Magical Monarch of Mo is a collection of stories about the king of this incredible land, his royal family and his people. The stories, all of them rather nonsensical and truly hilarious, deal with the most absurd topics. A purple dragon, an ice-cream cow, a wise donkey, a bad tempered princess and some civilized monkeys are only some of the characters that make of this episodic novel an amusing read for both children and grownups.
