Actually, not all of the official Oz books are by Baum, and not all of them
are in the public domain yet. There are a few people who had official
permission to write Oz books after Baum's death. The last of these books has
a copyright date of 1963.

List of "canonical" Oz books ("The Famous Forty")
are also expansions on the Oz universe that have been written recently, such
as Gregory Maguire's re-imaginings, which are definitely *not* appropriate
for children (although he did write a short story about the Scarecrow that
is a children's story and was included in a children's anthology,
"Half-Human" edited by Bruce Coville).
