Tip escapes with his now living creation and runs away to the Emerald City, beginning some wacky circumstances with new friends along the way as they try to rescue the city from the revolting General Jinjur.

Reader's Reviews


There were a lot of funny moments when the characters made jokes, intentional and unintentional, like a revolting army made up of pretty girls. Though the book is entertaining enough just in the middle of it, the end has a really interesting twist to it that solves all their problems. This is a really great sequel to the beloved children's classic! No wonder people let L. Frank Baum write a whole series about this fantastic place.

L. Frank Baum was known for "sanitizing" his stories. Therefore, the only problem one could have with the book was the mention of witchcraft.
