Frank Baum apparently knew well that the best castles are simply cottages with lofty ceilings, plenty of leg room and loads of books—and the best cottages are as tenderly thought-out and loved as a cash-rich castle. In either case, they need what the Knooks and fairies built into Claus's life&mdash,comfy, practical magic&mdash,because where magic happens, any place can be a palace!
In tribute to the seven-year-old days which will never come again (and, perhaps, in homage to the Princess Ozma of my dreams), Elspeth painted a little Christmas pony just the right size for any wee one's imagination from mendicant Mayrie to bounteous Bessie, and everyone in between.
Especially at Christmastide, some cupboard, corner, cubicle or cookie jar should store some particularly jolly treats. While you, like Santa Claus, devote your time to the pleasure of others dependable recipes in the busy season grant wonderful power. Recipes include: Ryl Gingerbread, Ryl Butter Cookies, Confectioner's Glaze, Santa Sweet Bread, Mother Hubbard's Bread.
L. Frank Baum had a playful poet's love of words (how else do you get Quadlings, Munchkins, Knooks and Woggle-bugs?) and an unaffected compassion for children. Both were talents and tendencies that were part of him, from his earliest days, which followed him into his final ones.
