About Book

Book Description
The renowned author of the wonderful Oz stories surpasses himself with a full-blown fairy tale, complete with magic wishes, palace life, an evil hag, and a poor boy and girl. "In some ways," Baum confided to his son, "Queen Zixi is my best effort." Critic Edward Wagenknecht goes further, terming it flatly one of the best fairy tales ever written by anyone. Adding to the delight of this classic are the original illustrations by Frederick Richardson.

Download Description
"The fairies assembled one moonlit night in a pretty clearing of the ancient forest of Burzee. The clearing was in the form of a circle, and all around stood giant oak and fir trees, while in the center the grass grew green and soft as velvet. If any mortal had ever penetrated so far into the great forest and could have looked upon the fairy circle by daylight, he might perhaps have seen a tiny path worn in the grass by the feet of the dancing elves."

Card catalog description
