Inspired by the Brothers Grimm and Lang, most of these stories set in the middle class situations of that time in America. Baum was a smart fabulist and he has brilliantly shown his creativity in this work. He tried to avoid the romance and violence that readers usually see in these kind of stories. In addition, with a moral at the end these tales are not only enjoyable, but also teach some lessons to your children.
An excerpt from the American Fairy Tales book
The king began to be anxious. All the women who looked at all kind hearted or pleasant had stopped bidding for lack of money, and the slender old dame with the wrinkles seemed determined to get the coronet at any price, and with it the boy husband. This ancient creature finally became so excited that her wig got crosswise of her head and her false teeth kept slipping out, which horrified the little king greatly; but she would not give up.
