Michael Patrick Hearn

Michael Patrick Hearn is an American literary scholar as well as a man of letters specializing in children's literature and its illustration. His works include ''The Annotated Wizard of Oz'' (1971/2000), ''The Annotated Christmas Carol'' (1977/2003), and ''The Annotated Huckleberry Finn'' (2001). He considers the three most quintessential American novels to be ''Moby-Dick'' by Herman Melville, ''The Wonderful Wizard of Oz'' by L. Frank Baum, and ''The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn'' by Mark Twain.

He is an expert on L. Frank Baum and is currently writing a biography about him, which sets forth to correct the numerous errors in previous biographies, many based on Frank Joslyn Baum's out of print and largely mythological ''To Please a Child''.

As an Oz and L. Frank Baum scholar, he also edited ''The Critical Heritage Edition of the Wizard of Oz'' for Schocken Books (1986), wrote the introduction to the first published version of the screenplay of ''The Wizard of Oz (1939 film)''. He appears in the documentaries ''Oz: the American Fairyland'' and ''Matilda Joslyn Gage'' (1983), credited as an "Authority on L. Frank Baum". He gave the keynote address at the Centennial convention of ''The Wonderful Wizard of Oz'' mounted by The International Wizard of Oz Club, and often makes public appearances in which he lectures on Baum.
