Oz Imitations began to appear soon after the publication of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1900.
As with the previous year's Father Goose, the initial critical and commercial success of the first Oz book inspired other writers, artists, and publishers to attempt to replicate it. Among the most prominent and noteworthy examples of this trend are:
- Zauberlinda, by Eva Katharine Gibson (1901)
- The Pearl and the Pumpkin, by Paul Clarendon West and W. W. Denslow (1904)
- The Golden Goblin, by Curtis Dunham (1906)
- Yama Yama Land, by Grace Duffie Boylan (1909)
- The Magical Land of Noom byJohnny Gruelle (1922)
- The Magic Land Series by various (1939-)
- The Amazing Land of Wew, by John G. Kaufer (1954)
There are also many other books that have been classified as Oz imitations or pastiches in the years and decades that followed 1900.
