#0110 Cooking in Oz $29.95
by Elaine Willingham and Steve Cox
Never before—"not no how"—has such a display of delights from the world of Oz been amassed into a single volume...until now. Now everyone can celebrate a century of Oz in the most delectable way.

Cooking in Oz boasts a unique variety of culinary choices from notable Oz personalities—including several descendants of Oz creator, L. Frank Baum—and one of Judy Garland's family favorites. With a cache of rare photographs and illustrations, this cookbook compendium takes you along an uncharted stretch of the Yellow Brick Road, featuring a vast array of Oz incarnations that spans the Twentieth Century (1900 - 2000), cleverly folded together with a bill of fare fit for a Wizard. This unusual cookbook and memory book is absolute Oz à la carte for any famished fan of this timeless tale.

From the oldest recipe "Grandma Baum's Ginger Drop Cakes" by L. Frank Baum's mother, Cynthia Stanton Baum. With others like Margaret (the Wicked Witch) "Hamilton's Wilted Lettuce Salad", "Zucchini À La Billie Burke"(Glinda), "Breakfast With Frank Morgan," (the Wizard himself) -- you will flip through recipe after recipe from a myriad of Oz connections. Softcover. Cookbooks ordered from Beyond the Rainbow are signed by the authors. Please let us know if you would like the book inscribed to someone special.
No longer in print, our publisher sold his company. We still have limited quantities of the cookbook

Super Sale Price $19.99

Welcome to the Land of Oz and the imagination of L. Frank Baum. Welcome to The Willard Carroll Collection, a world-renowned archive of more than 30,000 Wizard of Oz items.

For the first time ever, editor Linda Sunshine has collected excerpts from Baum's fourteen Oz novels, poems, short stories, and song lyrics and married them to art from around the world, some dating as far back as 1899. Here are 352 pages of stunning illustrations (some never before published in this country) and profoundly wise text that honors the ideals of home, heart, intellect, and bravery. Be prepared for wizards, witches, winged monkeys, a hungry tiger, a rainbow fairy, the Munchkins, the Fuddles, and the beloved characters who have become cultural icons: Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion. "In the Land of Oz, anything is possible," Baum tells us in Ozma of Oz (1907). "For it is a wonderful fairy country."

Ever since The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was first published, we've been entranced with life in Oz. More than a hundred years later, All Things Oz comes to earth to reignite the imagination and offer safe passage back to the land over the rainbow. Open this book and let the journey begin.
Our copies include the author's autograph.

# 0112 It's A Wonderful Life Memory Book $18.95
by Stephen Cox
Few motion pictures have enjoyed a renaissance like the 1946 Frank Capra masterpiece It's a Wonderful Life. Nominated for five Academy Awards, it was dismissed as syrupy Christmas fare and fell into obscurity until television gave it new life. Today it's an American tradition. With The It's a Wonderful Life Memory Book (Cumberland House Press) by Stephen Cox, any fan of the classic film can further appreciate its magic and legacy. The warm reminiscences of the film's cast are supported by excellent photographs, providing the perfect companion for any fan of the film or anyone who believes in miracles and angels. The book features dozens of interviews and rare behind-the-scenes photographs that allow readers to see how the movie was created. Comments from Frank Capra, Jimmy Stewart, Bobbie Anderson, Jimmy Hawkins, Karolyn Grimes, and many more make the story come alive. Signed by author. A perfect Cristmas present!

"What more could there be to say—or learn—about Frank Capra’s beloved film? That’s what I thought when I first looked at Stephen Cox’s new book. Then I started browsing, and some items caught my eye; I soon was reading, and couldn’t stop. Cox has dug in and done his homework to find images we haven’t seen, facts and nuggets of trivia no one has printed or pointed out before. There are sidebars and highlights, from a lovely remembrance of Henry Travers (“Clarence”) by his granddaughter to a selection of magazine and Sunday section covers that featured the film at the time of its release. Though slim, this volume is surprisingly thorough and utterly disarming: a must-have for anyone who cares about the movie." — Leonard Maltin
