Lyman Frank Baum was an American author chiefly famous for his children's books, particularly The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its sequels.

He wrote 14 novels in the Oz series, plus 41 other novels (not counting four lost, unpublished novels), 83 short stories, over 200 poems, and at least 42 scripts.

He made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and the nascent medium of film; the 1939 adaptation of the first Oz book became a landmark of 20th-century cinema.
