Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Includes the original John R. Neill illustrations< P>Few fantasy lands have captured our hearts and imaginations as has the marvelous land of Oz. For over four generations, children and adults alike have reveled in the magical adventures of its beloved folk. Baum's second book about Oz, < I>The Marvelous Land of Oz< /I> is the story of the wonderful adventures of a young boy named Tip as he travels throughout its many lands and meets old friends and new.

Synopsis:

In the Country of the Gillikins, which is at the North of the Land of Oz, lived a youth called Tip. There was more to his name than that, for old Mombi often declared that his whole name was Tippetarius; but no one was expected to say such a long word when "Tip" would do just as well. This boy remembered nothing of his parents, for he had been brought when quite young to be reared by the old woman known as Mombi, whose reputation, I am sorry to say, was none of the best. For the Gillikin people had reason to suspect her of indulging in magical arts, and therefore hesitated to associate with her.
