For over a year, Ness reread the Famous Forty. Beginning with the 14 books original creator Frank L. Baum wrote, continuing on to the books written by Ruth Plumly Thompson, and onwards from there. She brought this historical perspective to the movie adaptations and recent Gregory Maguire reinterpretations.
