Lyman Frank Baum tried being a traveling salesman, a journalist, a playwright, and an actor before he started writing Oz stories. No wonder there is no end to the wild and wonderful characgters and adventures. In this one an earthquake takes Dorothy to Oz where she teams up with the Wizard for a grand procession through Oz - miniature piglets, Jim the old horse, dragonettes, and more.
Excellent addition to the series.
The overarching plot is really just a vehicle for cute vignettes as the characters travel about Oz.
Perfect book to read to kids, or to let kids read for themselves.
I am annoyed because my copy of tik-tok of oz redirects me here, but thats not right because my emerald city of oz did so too and they are not the same
part of the Oz story, but not The Wizard that we all know. characters we know and love, though!
Another of Baum's marvelous chronicles about the enchanting land of Oz. Replete with Wogglebugs, Fuddles, Nomes, and a Gallipoot.
