I didn‘t really like this book when I read it as a teenager, but I actually quite enjoyed it this time around. I still like the movie better, though.

Finding Dorothy: A Novel | Elizabeth Letts

This was a bookclub reread. I gave it 5* when it was released, but have more mixed feelings now. I‘ve read piles historical fiction since then and have become critical of the naïveté authors sometimes write into historical figures. Maud Gage had a fascinating upbringing with her suffragette mother and subsequent marriage to L Frank and I believe her to be more sophisticated than she was portrayed here. ↓

marleed That said I‘m really glad I gave this a reread because I took the time to google the Gage men and Baum women this time. My bookclub was surprised they were so intrigued by Maud‘s story. One person thought L Frank was a narcissist and Maud a terrible mother but no one else (including me) felt that way at all. 2w

Very wholesome, it inspired me to read the original Wizard of Oz book and have an Oz movie marathon with my son. Hoping to go see wicked too as a finale to the Oz adventure. 💕

Back to my childhood. Adventure with a raggedy group of fantastical characters. Trying to save the Shaggy man's brother from the Gnome King. I wonder if Cornelia Funke was inspired by this series. The gnomes seemed very similar. Onomatopoeia in its title. #PopSugar2022

This was a most interesting read. You not only learn about the behind the scenes filming of the Wizard of Oz, but also the life and times of the author of the Oz books as seen through the eyes of his wife, Maud, daughter of the famous suffragist, Matilda Joslyn Gage.
