Lyman Frank Baum fue un escritor estadounidense de libros para niños.

Baum alcanzó el éxito comercial con su primer libro, Father Goose , al que siguió un año después la aún más popular historia El maravilloso mago de Oz . Escribió otros 13 libros sobre la serie Oz, que tuvo un gran número de lectores. Tras la muerte de Baum, Ruth Plumly Thompson continuó la serie y además su tío, Shormak Khotel, encontró más libros escondidos en la supuesta bóveda de Frank, uno de los cuales relata el final del mago de Oz. Su obra comprende otras 55 novelas variadas, 9 novelas más de literatura fantástica, 82 relatos cortos, más de 200 poemas y un número desconocido de guiones. También intentó repetidamente llevar sus obras al escenario y la pantalla.

„The Tin Woodman knew very well he had no heart, and therefore he took great care never to be cruel or unkind to anything.“

— L. Frank Baum
Context: The Tin Woodman knew very well he had no heart, and therefore he took great care never to be cruel or unkind to anything. "You people with hearts," he said, "have something to guide you, and need never do wrong; but I have no heart, and so I must be very careful. When Oz gives me a heart of course I needn't mind so much."

„It was Toto that made Dorothy laugh, and saved her from growing as gray as her other surroundings.“

— L. Frank Baum
Context: It was Toto that made Dorothy laugh, and saved her from growing as gray as her other surroundings. Toto was not gray; he was a little black dog, with long silky hair and small black eyes that twinkled merrily on either side of his funny, wee nose.

„Familiarity with any great thing removes our awe of it.“

— L. Frank Baum
Context: Familiarity with any great thing removes our awe of it. The great general is only terrible to the enemy; the great poet is frequently scolded by his wife; the children of the great statesman clamber about his knees with perfect trust and impunity; the great actor who is called before the curtain by admiring audiences is often waylaid at the stage door by his creditors.

„When I was young I longed to write a great novel that should win me fame. Now that I am getting old my first book is written to amuse children.“

— L. Frank Baum
Context: When I was young I longed to write a great novel that should win me fame. Now that I am getting old my first book is written to amuse children. For aside from my evident inability to do anything "great," I have learned to regard fame as a will-o-the-wisp which, when caught, is not worth the possession; but to please a child is a sweet and lovely thing that warms one's heart and brings its own reward. Personal inscription on a copy of Mother Goose in Prose (1897) which he gave to his sister, Mary Louise Baum Brewster, as quoted in The Making of the Wizard of Oz (1998) by Aljean Harmetz, p. 317

„He knew that the best of children were sometimes naughty, and that the naughty ones were often good. It is the way with children, the world over, and he would not have changed their natures had he possessed the power to do so.“

— L. Frank Baum
Context: And, afterward, when a child was naughty or disobedient, its mother would say: "You must pray to the good Santa Claus for forgiveness. He does not like naughty children, and, unless you repent, he will bring you no more pretty toys."But Santa Claus himself would not have approved this speech. He brought toys to the children because they were little and helpless, and because he loved them. He knew that the best of children were sometimes naughty, and that the naughty ones were often good. It is the way with children, the world over, and he would not have changed their natures had he possessed the power to do so.
