Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For more than a century, L. Frank Baums kingdom of Oz and its delightful denizens have enchanted readers of all ages. In this illustrated Modern Library edition, the bestselling novelist and childrens book writer Gregory Maguire takes readers on a guided tour of Oz, gathering and introducing us to three of Baums beloved stories:

The Marvelous Land of Oz, the sequel to The Wizard of Oz, is the adventure-packed tale of a Gillikin boy named Tip who flees Old Mombi the witch in search of the Emerald City.

Ozma of Oz, set mainly in the strange land of Ev, features the clever and beautiful new ruler of the Emerald City, as well as Dorothy of Kansas, the mechanical marvel Tik-Tok, and the dreaded Nome King.

The Emerald City of Oz recounts Dorothys trip to Oz with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, and the Nome Kings terrible plot against the kingdom.

For more than a century, L. Frank Baum's kingdom of Oz and its delightful denizens have enchanted readers of all ages. Now, bestselling novelist Maguire ("Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West") introduces new readers to three of Baum's beloved Oz stories. Illustrations.
