Ozma of Oz

L. Frank Baum

Book Overview: 

Ozma of Oz was the third title in the Oz series by L. Frank Baum. In this book Dorothy is shipwrecked and lands on the shores of a fairy country that adjoins Oz, the land of Ev. There she meets Tiktok, a wind up mechanical man, a talking chicken, Billina, and Ozma, the girl ruler of Oz who is leading a quest to rescue the royal family of Ev from their captivity by the Nome King. Dorothy is also reunited with her old friends, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion. Together the adventurers travel to the Nome King’s underground kingdom and have many exciting adventures before returning to Oz, and for Dorothy, eventual return to her family in the “civilized” world.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Dorothy, looking at it with big eyes, "is not alive at all, and I wonder what it was made for, and why it was locked up in this queer place."

"That is a mystery," remarked the hen, twisting her head to arrange her wing-feathers with her bill.[Pg 55]

Dorothy stepped inside the little room to get a back view of the copper man, and in this way discovered a printed card that hung between his shoulders, it being suspended from a small copper peg at the back of his neck. She unfastened this card and returned to the path, where the light was better, and sat herself down upon a slab of rock to read the printing.

"What does it say?" asked the hen, curiously.

Dorothy read the card aloud, spelling out the big words with some difficulty; and this is what she read:

Very much in line with the film, Return to Oz, a personal favorite of mine. Rife with weird objets d'art and dramatic situations void of any real danger. The underground fortress and faint-hearted exploration were reminiscent of Narnia, which is to say I was entertained and sometimes absorbed. It bo

The first book in the Oz series (The Wonderful Wizard of Oz) is a dark fairy-tale featuring hordes of monsters, gruesome battles and a series of heroes each with a lesson to learn.

The second book (The Marvelous Land of Oz) is a clever comedy full of wry wordplay and silly situations.

Very strange but what else was i expecting? We follow Dorothy Gale on a new adventure with similar friends and a Hen.
Inevitably Dorothy wants to go home in the end because she misses her family but she will always remember the fun and joys she had with all her new friends.

The original title for this was...Ozma of Oz: A Record of Her Adventures with Dorothy Gale of Kansas, Billina the Yellow Hen, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodsman, Tik-Tok, the Cowardly Lion and the Hungry Tiger; Besides Other Good People too Numerous to Mention Faithfully Recorded Herein.

You gotta think

I’m going to keep reading these books, just because I love the whimsical and colorful world of Oz that L. Frank Baum paints on each page of his stories, but I think it’s clear with this one he may have experienced a bit of writers fatigue, if you want to call it that.

Barely any of the story takes p

Dorothy returns to Oz (she wasn't in book two) and meets all the new characters from the last book and catches up with all her friends from book one.

I love this one and was a little scared of the Wheelers and the Nomes when I first had it read to me as a child. With my adult eyes, they're not so sca

The best of a great series

Though I first read this book about 70 years ago, it still remains one of the best books I have ever read. Adults may feel that it is a kid's book, and of course it is perfect for kids, but believe me, it can be enjoyed by people of any age. All you need is love of a good s

So im reading all the Oz books plus the side books but feeling a little sick so review to come when i'm feeling better

After I finished the previous book of the series my reaction was, "Where the heck is Cowardly Lion and more importantly Dorothy?" I am an adult of twenty first century, but the reactions of kids of the early twentieth century were very similar. In fact L. Frank Baum admitted this in the preface for

I like the fact that L. Frank Baum wrote this book to appeal to all of his young fans who wanted to know what happened to Dorothy and the Cowardly Lion after book two in the series.

For those who have not read books 1 and 2, please note that some details below will contain spoilers about those books
