The Real Wizard of OZ
This had scared and hunted both of his relatives and also talked about how much is real or fake about the person. This idea fantasiesed me and I guess lead to at least one of the famous characters in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz: 100th Anniversary Edition (Books of Wonder) . If you are not familar with the books you maybe confused about how the Tin Woodman has anything to do with amputation. The idea of this is the Tin Man made a deal with a witch and he kept geting part of him cut off by an ax and being changed into a machine by the witch. I feel like I probably should have known this as the first 14 Oz books are some of my favorite books of all times and ones I can't tell you how many times I have read.
