Also for those of us who are familiar with the Oz *books* as well as the
there is _Ozmasaura_, _Jelliasaura jambi_, _Jinjuraptor_, _Tiktokosuchus_,
_Jackpumpkinocephalus_, _Scrapsophysis_, and _Polychromoceratops_... :)

And Oz isn't the first children's literature to be honored with a dinosaur...
_Borogovia_ (a Troodontid) is named for the mimsy Borogoves in the
"Jabberwocky" poem from Lewis Carroll's _Through the Looking-Glass_.
