Thompson's Toothache!

Ruth Plumly Thompson circa 1972

A new FREE Tiger Tale is up on the main Hungry Tiger Press website. This month it's The Toothache of the Sultan by Ruth Plumly Thompson, originally published in the Philadelphia Public Ledger, March 18, 1917. There are over a hundred other free on-line stories by Oz creators in the TIGER TALES archive. Check them out!

Hungry Tiger Press has also reprinted Thompson's first novel, The Wish Express, which was first serialized in the Public Ledger. It's a very interesting little book, and probably the work that got her the job continuing the Oz series. Click here to take a look!
