Rinkitink in Oz

L. Frank Baum

Book Overview: 

Rinkitink in Oz is the tenth book in the Oz series written by L. Frank Baum, first published in 1916. It was originally written in 1905 as a stand alone fantasy work and subequently rewritten as an Oz book. Therefore, most of the action takes place outside of Oz in neighboring fairy countries. It tells the story of Prince Inga’s quest to rescue his parents from captivity after his island home is ravaged by enemies. With the help of three magical pearls and the more dubious assistance of the excessively jolly King Rinkitink and his surly goat, Bilbil, his travels lead him to the underground caverns of the Nome King where he is united with some people from Oz who help him to free his parents and restore his island kingdom.

This they carefully placed in a sack to preserve it for future use, the little fat King having first eaten as much as he cared for. This consumed some time, for Rinkitink had been exceedingly hungry and liked to eat in a leisurely manner. When he had finished the meal he straddled Bilbil's back and set out to explore the island, Prince Inga walking by his side.

They found on every hand ruin and desolation. The houses of the people had been pilfered of all valuables and then torn down or burned. Not a boat had been left upon the shore, nor was there a single person, man or woman or child, remaining upon the island, save themselves. The only inhabitants of Pingaree now consisted of a fat little King, a boy and a goat.

Even Rinkitink, merry hearted as he was, found it hard to laugh in the face of this mighty disas. . . Read More

Rinkitink is hardly in Oz. 2.5 stars.

I suppose once you visit Oz, it’s hard to not want to come back. There’s something about the simplicity and imagination of a kind of fairytale that keeps drawing me back.

Originally I was “Narnia homesick” and picked up Oz as a similar’ish portal fantasy story and now 10 books later, here we are.


De los libros de Oz, este se encuentra entre los que más me han gustado.
Aunque prácticamente podría ser un libro independiente.

Mis favoritos fueron Bilbil y Rinkitink, aunqur al principio me exaspera a un poco hee-hee-hee.

First, my dislikes about the book: snother misleading title, and another deus ex machina ending - but at least Baum is consistent. Rinkitink is an important character, and he does eventually wind up in Oz, but Prince Inga is the main protagonist who drives the plot and actually develops as a charact
