“Munchkins” is now available over at my #CafePress Shop: (

Munchkins, quite obviously, are the natives of the fictional Munchkin Country in the Oz books written by L. Frank Baum. They first appeared in the 1900 novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, in which they are described as being somewhat short of stature, and fond of wearing only blue. Later books never note anything unusual about Munchkin height, but continue to emphasize their obsessive color preference.

Oz Fact: As a result of the popularity of the 1939 MGM film The Wizard of Oz, the word “munchkin” has entered the English language as a reference to small children, dwarfs, or anything of diminutive stature.
