SUMMARY
'Readers who have followed Dorothy's adventures in the Land of Oz will be interested in Trot's equally strange experiences. Many children implored me to "write something about the mermaids," and I willingly granted the request. "The Sea Fairies"...was received with much approval by my readers, many have written me that they like Trot "almost as well as Dorothy" This story of "Sky Island" has astonished me and I think it will also astonish you. The sky country is certainly a remarkable land.' L. Frank Baum In Sky Island are some other recognisable Oz characters, Button-Bright and Polychrome, the Rainbow's Daughter. You will also meet the bad Greatly Stately Irately Boolooroo who takes our friends prisoner, and the little blue dog that crows like a rooster, the pretty blue cat that sings like a bird, the soft, blue lamb that chatters like a monkey, the poetic blue parrot that barks like a dog and the fuzzy blue rabbit that roars like a lion. Giant 8.5" x 11" book
AUTHOR BIO
James Allen (28 November 1864 - 24 January 1912) was a British philosophical writer known for his inspirational books and poetry and as a pioneer of the self-help movement. His best known work, As a Man Thinketh, has been mass-produced since its publication in 1903. It has been a source of inspiration to motivational and self-help authors. Born in Leicester, England, into a working-class family, Allen was the elder of two brothers. His mother could neither read nor write. His father, William, was a factory knitter. In 1879, following a downturn in the textile trade of central England, Allen's father travelled alone to America to find work and establish a new home for the family. Within two days of arriving his father was pronounced dead at New York City Hospital, believed to be a case of robbery and murder. At age fifteen, with the family now facing economic disaster, Allen was forced to leave school and find work.
