Christopher Plover's Childhood
Christopher Plover was born on February 14th, 1885, to William and Mary Plover. William managed a prominent fabric wholesale business, allowing him to keep his family well provided for. William ensured that his son never wanted for reading material, recognizing its importance, and introduced his son to a range of classics, including imported stories from England, such as William Morris' Well at the End of the World, and The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald. At the age of 15, Plover was introduced to L. Frank Baum's Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and was immediately hooked on the fantastic world of Oz.
