The story starts with an argument between Ann and Salye Soforth, the rulers of Oogaboo, on who should sweep the floor. Their kingdom is a small one, and their parents left them long ago. Ann soon gets an idea to conquer the world, and employs seventeen out of all eighteen men in her kingdom to become her army. Glinda sees them in her record book, however, and makes sure they lose their way. Soon they are stuck wandering a barren land, which is fortunately easy to conquer.

A new character has joined the Oz books: Betsy Bobbin from Oklahoma. She escapes a ship wreck and ends up in a fairy country, with only a mule named Hank for a companion. They meet the Shaggy Man and Ozga in Roseland, where they have to escape for their lives. The Shaggy Man had left Oz to find his brother, who has been taken by the Nome King. They all head there together, while the Nome King tries to throw many obstacles in their way.

Reader's Reviews


Something really cute happens during the ending that is worthwhile to see and answers a mystery about Toto from the very first book.
