Book Excerpt: 
. . .I'm 'fraid so, your Majesty. Of course, they may not be dangerous, but we mustn't take chances. Enough accidents happen to us poor Loons as it is, and my advice is to condemn and perforate 'em as quickly as possible."

"Keep your advice to yourself," said the monarch, in a peeved tone. "Who's King here, anyhow? You or Me?"

"We made you our King because you have less common sense than the rest of us," answered Panta Loon, indignantly. "I could have been King myself, had I wanted to, but I didn't care for the hard work and responsibility."

As he said this, the big Loon strutted back and forth in the space between the throne of King Bal and the prisoners, and the other Loons seemed much impressed by his defiance. But suddenly there came a sharp report and Panta Loon instantly disappeared, to the great astonishment of the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and Woot the Wanderer, who saw55 on the spot where the big fellow had stood a little heap of flabby, w. . . Read More

Years ago I read the L. Frank Baum Oz books. I jumped around a lot, reading the initial ten, and a few of the Ruth Plumly Thompson ones as well. I somehow never got around to reading the last three of Baum’s, a mistake I am hereby rectifying. The twelfth book in the series, The Tin Woodman of Oz,...more

This was not my favorite Oz book, but it was nice returning to the magical, wonderful Land of Oz once again, where no one ages, few die, and anything is possible. This was the third of L. Frank Baum's Oz series that I have read (with my son); the other two were the first, "The Wizard of Oz," and...more

Don't get me wrong: the 1939 version of Wizard of Oz is, excepting the flying monkeys, one hundred minutes of unadulterated Technicolor joy. But if you're familiar with Return to Oz, you'll have an idea of how bizarre and playfully bent Oz can become. The key word is playful. In Return to Oz, the...more

So, if you've seen my other Oz series reviews you already know that I don't mince words, and this review won't be any different. This installment in the Oz series picks up a pretty significant dropped thread from earlier in the saga: Nick Chopper, a.k.a. the Tin Woodsman, jilted a Munchkin girl....more

The Tin Woodman of Oz , which is a century old this year and hence the main theme of the upcoming OzCon, was the third Oz book I read, way back in 1989. After reading Wizard and Land, I checked to see what the local library had, and it was this and Cowardly Lion, as well as The Sea Fairies and S...more

Overall I enjoyed this one as much as I did when I first read it in 6th Grade. The story is well plotted and the adventures are pretty Grand. In true Baum fashion it’s much more about the journey than it is the goal, which is welcome in this case.


This has to be one of the more unsettling Oz books. Baum confirms that not only does no one die in Oz, they don't age either. Babies stay babies. Old men stay old men. And body parts stay alive even after the spirits of their owners have moved on to tin bodies. And tin smiths might keep tho...more

Doma Publishing's Wizard of Oz collection has taken me several years to read with my son at bedtime. It was interesting revisiting the texts that I read swiftly through my youth, as I was about his age when I read them and remembered little beyond some of the characters that don't appear in any o...more

The story of Tin Woodman was told in the first book, right after we got to meet him initially. To remind you about his origin, he was a normal human being who fell in love with a girl working (slavering would be a better word) for a Wicked Witch. The latter did not want to lose her maidservant so...more

Been awhile since I had read one of these. They are so much the same that reading them one after another is kind of a little annoying. And yet this one left me interested in reading the next one immediately. As usual it was a travelogue visiting odd new characters. But at least there was a relati...more
