About the Author:

Elaine Willingham has owned and operated Beyond the Rainbow, a mail-order business devoted to Oz, for more than ten years. From her offices in St. Louis, she maintains a popular Wizard of Oz Web site, the best of its kind. Steve Cox is the author of eleven books on film and television, including the hugely successful "Munchkins of Oz," "The Abbott & Costello Story," "The Beverly Hillbillies," and "The Addams Chronicles." A frequent contributor to the "Los Angeles Times," he lives in California.

Review:

"A time-capsule... twists and turns in its journey down the yellow brick road...cleverly written and assembled by Oz historians " -- Cult Movies magazine, 1999

"Cooking in Oz" will keep fans of the Oz legends eagerly turning the paperback's pages even if they never go near the kitchen. Authors Elaine Willingham and Steve Cox have assembled not only recipes but also an assortment of anecdotes, memories and photos from a wide range of people connected with the story since its first appearance 100 years ago. The orginal, "The Wizard of Oz," by L. Frank Baum, was published as a children's book in 1900. It turned into a 20th-century cultural phenomenon, immortalized in the classic 1939 film, and subsequent film, television and musical-theater versions. That adds up to a huge cast of collaborators, and their families and descendants, with stories to tell and favorite foods to offer. -- The Associated Press

If you are a "Wizard" fan you will enjoy this book full of pictures of Garland and other Oz characters. -- Enid News and Eagle, April 28, 2000
