Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following the success of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, author L.Frank Baum

produced a sequel, The Land of Oz, in which he introduced a whole new set

of characters.

Here we meet a young boy named Tip from the country of the Gillikins (slightly

north of the Land of Oz), who creates a friend named Jack Pumpkinhead with

the aid of the marvelous powder of life; General Jinjur, who, commanding an

army of girls, lays siege to the Emerald City; and the mysterious Queen Ozma,

who is crowned rightful ruler of Oz.

In addition to Baum's delightful story, The Land of Oz contains essays by major

Oz experts-including award-winning author Harlan Ellison- certain to give the

reader even greater insight to the world and characters created by one of

America's most influential children's book writers.

This is the second in a series of definitive new and collectable Oz editions prepared in conjunction with The Baum Family Trust.

Synopsis:

Grade 3-6-Dorothy Gale returns in this third book in L. Frank Baum's series about the Land of Oz. In this adventure, Dorothy is tossed overboard from a ship and, when she reaches land, discovers that she is in the fairy realm of Ev. Accompanied by a talking chicken named Billina, Dorothy becomes embroiled in a quest to rescue Queen Ev and her ten children from the Nome King's evil clutches. Even with the help of her old friends-the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, the Cowardly Lion, and Ozma of Oz-it is up to Dorothy to save the day. John McDonough's smooth narration is a perfect fit for this timeless classic. The deep timbre of his voice soothes listeners, evoking the magic found in these far away lands. His respect for the characters and the story is evident in the reading, making even the most outrageous events seem plausible. A solid purchase for any collection.-Veronica Schwartz, Des Plaines Public Library, IL
