Aunt Jane's Nieces at Millville

Aunt Jane's Nieces at Millville by L. Frank Baum
By: (1856-1919)

Aunt Jane's Nieces at Millville is a 1908 young-adult novel written by L. Frank Baum, famous as the creator of the Land of Oz. It is the third volume in "the successful Aunt Jane Series," following Aunt Jane's Nieces and Aunt Jane's Nieces Abroad.

These efforts do not always yield fiscally sound results...

I don't know why Baum isn't better known for his mysteries. They're very nostalgic and enjoyable. Thankyou to all the readers that made the audio possible. Nice job by all.
