The Surprising Adventures of the Magical Monarch of Mo and His People

L. Frank Baum (1856 - 1919)

The Magical Monarch of Mo is a set of stories about the titular king, his queen, and his royal children. The stories are uproariously funny, dealing with topics as absurd as a man losing his temper who then tries to find it, an evil midget who steals a princess's big toe, and an entire city filled with highly civilized monkeys! Join the Monarch and all his friends for a rollicking adventure, filled with fun for the whole family! (Summary by Miriam Esther Goldman)
