. . .k that sent him rolling heel over head; but by the time Trot had slid down from her seat the old sailor-man was sitting up and looking around him with much satisfaction.

"It's sort o' pretty here," said he.

"Earth is a beautiful place!" cried Trot.

"I wonder where on earth we are?" pondered the Ork, turning first one bright eye and then the other to this side and that. Trees there were, in plenty, and shrubs and flowers and green turf. But there were no houses; there were no paths; there was no sign of civilization whatever.

"Just before I settled down on the ground I thought I caught a view of the ocean," said the Ork. "Let's see if I was right." Then he flew to a little hill, near by, and Trot and Cap'n Bill followed him more slowly. When they stood on the top of the hill they could see the blue waves of the ocean in front of them, to the right of them, and at the left of them. Behind the hill was a forest that shut o. . . Read More

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.

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
