Book Excerpt: 
. . .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

I just finished reading Ozma of Oz, third book in the Oz series by L. Frank Baum. There was a funny quote near the end. Ozma, speaking to Dorothy, says, "You see, in this country are a number of youths who do not like to work, and the college is an excellent place for them." There are a number of...more

Still loopy but a tad darker. Again, haven't read this in ages; if anything, I remember it better from the cult classic Return to Oz movie, which made for an interesting comparison.

But this one gives you lots of fun with Dorothy and the delightful queen Ozma, not to mention an intrepid hen given...more

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.

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...more

3.5-4 stars I enjoyed book one and two of this series better.

Dorothy is on a ship with her uncle, headed to Australia, when a storm hits and she ends up going overboard with a hen (Billina, originally named Bill). The two unlikely companions wash ashore and have an adventure together, meeting the...more

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 f...more

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 bo...more

This is my favorite Oz book so far and would make an amazing movie. It makes me a little sad that kids aren't still reading this series and that the internet isn't filled with Ozma kitch. If I dressed like Ozma for Halloween, would anyone recognize me? I'm guessing not, and that makes me a littl...more
