After the publication of THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ, L. Frank Baum wrote another fairy tale entitled DOT AND TOT OF MERRYLAND. This book was illustrated by Baum's friend, W.W. Denslow, who had illustrated two of Baum's book which were, FATHER GOOSE: HIS BOOK and THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ. Unlike THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ, this book had no color plates, but colored text illustrations were printed on nearly every page of the book.

DOT AND TOT OF MERRYLAND is available from Books of Wonder with new illustrations by Donald Abbot. The book is far from Baum's best work, but is best known as the last Baum book that would be illustrated by W.W. Denslow.

DOT AND TOT OF MERRYLAND was first published in 1901 by the Geo. M. Hill company of Chicgo.

dot book: Information from Answers.com (712 words)
The name is derived from the use of dots on drill sheets which symbolize players on the field: a dot book focuses on the owner's particular dots and other marchers the player may have to guide (use to determine an adjusted location).
Dot books also become irreplaceable as a season moves on: whenever drill is changed or a visual is added, the dot book becomes the sole record of this change.
The dot book overcomes this limitation through loss of data: by only focusing on your dot, and the dots that are around it, you can eliminate most of the other dots.
