Book Excerpt: 
. . .So he began by sprinkling some of the magic Powder of Life from the pepper-box upon the body of the saw-horse. Then he lifted his left hand, with the little finger pointing upward, and said: "Weaugh!"

"What does that mean, dear father?" asked Jack, curiously.

"I don't know," answered Tip. Then he lifted his right hand, with the thumb pointing upward and said: "Teaugh!"

"What's that, dear father?" inquired Jack.

"It means you must keep quiet!" replied the boy, provoked at being interrupted at so important a moment.

"How fast I am learning!" remarked the Pumpkinhead, with his eternal smile.

Tip now lifted both hands above his head, with all the fingers and thumbs spread out, and cried in a loud voice: "Peaugh!"

Immediately the saw-horse moved, stretched its legs, yawned with its chopped-out mouth, and shook a few grains of the powder . . . Read More

This is the second volume of this series that I read on my holiday back in June. A lovely first of this specific edition of the book. Charming line drawings and coloured illustrations by Biro accompanied by a whole series of characters both old and new made it a pleasant enough drift back into th...more

This book is slightly ridiculous. It’s hard to evaluate The Marvelous Land of Oz for what it is - a children’s book and a sequel (a sequel to a great example of the genre at that) rather than just a book. But it’s a goofy, daffy book. It’s weirdly pro-women (in a way) for 1904 - everyone who make...more

Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths.

Like many people my age, I actually remember when The Wizard of Oz movie being shown on network television every year was an event. I mean, we didn’t have VCRs (Let alone Netflix) back in the dark ages, so if you wanted to get a glimpse of Oz, you had to plan yo...more

So. Much. Weirder. Both than your memory of this stuff, and even than the first Oz book. You've got the Scarecrow set up, "brains" and all having gone to his head, as King Fool of Emerald City, you've got an antifeminist caricature (not that i mind it when it's so transparent, even for a kid in t...more

A straw king? Transgender issues addressed? What in the heck's a wogglebug? Heaven knows what's going on here, but I like it!

Strange though it may sound, I preferred this sequel over the first book in L. Frank Baum's Oz series, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, from which most of Dorothy's famous story...more

I've always preferred this one to 'The Wonderful Wizard...' because I love the new characters introduced here. It's great to have the Scarecrow and the Tin Man back (they were always my favourite characters from the first book, if you don't count Toto) but Jack Pumpkinhead, the Saw Horse, H.M. Wo...more

Everything in life is unusual until you get accustomed to it.

I've read The Wonderful Wizard of Oz sometime last year (and really enjoyed it), and I have to say that this book was a pretty damn good sequel to it. I enjoyed being introduced to new characters, as well as following new adventures of...more

I loved the story and characters. My favorite was Jack Pumpkinhead. The ending was a total surprise and I just loved it! Looking forward to the other books.

An orphan boy called Tip was one of the inhabitants of a magical place called Oz. He lived with an evil witch Mombi who decided to turn him into a marble statue one day being fed up with his pranks. Tip escaped and headed for the Emerald City having nothing better to do. He arrived just in time t...more

In the northern Land of Oz, there lived a boy called Tip who was reared by a haggard old woman named Mombi. One day, Tip got the idea to startle Mombi, so he took a large pumpkin from the pumpkin patch, carve...more
