Toto's Tale and True Chronicle of Oz - Sylvia Bortin Patience

What took so long for someone to write the Oz story from Toto's point of view? This is a sweet story that includes some of the illustrations from Baum's originals Oz chronicles. The author draws from the original stories, not the movie, and I appreciate her fidelity. I'm a sucker for all things canine, so this is a hit with me.
