The Lost Princess of Oz

L. Frank Baum

Book Overview: 

Who is stealing all the magic in Oz? Dorothy and her friends set out to comb all of Oz, not only for magic stolen from Glinda and the Wizard, but also for the kidnapped princess, Ozma. Along the way, they explore regions never seen in other Oz books, meeting strange and interesting people and animals, and falling into peril more than once. It’s a desperate mission – for if the thefts are all linked, then it means that some magician unknown to them has acquired powers beyond any available to them now. How will they find him? And how will they conquer him? Not one of them knows – but with continuing faith that goodness will triumph, they march forth to try.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Dorothy. "Betsy and Trot and I won't waste another minute."

"I'm not sure you girls will make good detectives," remarked the Wizard, "but I'll go with you to protect you from harm and to give you my advice. All my wizardry, alas, is stolen, so I am now really no more a wizard than any of you, but I will try to protect you from any enemies you may meet."

"What harm could happen to us in Oz?" inquired Trot.

"What harm happened to Ozma?" returned the Wizard.

"If there is an Evil Power abroad in our fairyland, which is able to steal not only Ozma and her Magic Picture, but Glinda's Book of Records and all her magic, and my black bag containing all my tricks of wizardry, then that Evil Power may yet cause us considerable injury. Ozma is a fairy, and so is Glinda, so no power can kill or destroy them, but you girls are all mortals and so are Button-Bright and I, so we must watch out for ourselves."

I’ve said for years that this was my favorite and it still is. From the brilliant opening lines to the exciting conclusion, this is Oz and Baum and it’s best. It’s a great little mystery Tale with a delightful mix of new and old characters. I cannot recommend this one enough.

90/100

I actually thinks this is the quintessential Oz book. It features most of the characters you know and love from the series and a sharp narrative angle. We sped through it because my kids were really interested to hear what happened next. I think we finished the final third in one sitting.

The best thing about this Oz book is that it has all the main characters adventuring together - the entire huge ensemble of them - as they search for Ozma.

ETA 2018: The above point still stands - it is nice to see the stable of Oz characters undertake an adventure, instead of being the deus ex ma...more

Doma Publishing's Wizard of Oz collection has taken me several years to read with my son at bedtime. It was interesting revisiting the texts that I read swiftly through my youth, as I was about his age when I read them and remembered little beyond some of the characters that don't appear in any o...more

I previously read this book in 5th grade and again, at least in part, in college. This is one of the best books in the Oz series, in spite of Ozma being a damsel in distress for almost the entire book. It takes a lot of people, not just any one person, to rescue her, so at least there is that. In...more

One of my favorite Oz books! review to come (maybe)

One fine morning in the Land of Oz Dorothy decided to show her friends around. Because nobody can as much as sneeze without asking Ozma's permission - I have this impression - Dorothy went to Ozma and realized that the latter disappeared: mysteriously and without any trace. Not to worry, Ozma had...more

Ah, this is one of the most tantalizing installments in the Oz series. Not only does it feature perhaps the best title of all of L. Frank Baum's Oz books, it has one of the biggest casts of characters at work.

When Ozma disappears, all her friends go and search for her—as a result, we get to read...more

Although this book was 100% Oz, it felt different to me than previous ones. It once again had a sound plot, and there weren't any bizarre character introduced unnecessarily. All of the scenes in the book contributed to the movement of the story. Maybe Baum is just finally growing up into his writ...more
