Following the success of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, author L.Frank Baum produced a sequel,The Land of Oz, in which he introduced a whole new set of characters. |
Here we meet a young boy named Tip from the country of the Gillikins (slightly north of the Land of Oz), who creates a friend named Jack Pumpkinhead with the aid of the marvelous powder of life; General Jinjur, who, commanding an army of girls, lays siege to the Emerald City; and the mysterious Queen Ozma, who is crowned rightful ruler of Oz.
In addition to Baum's delightful story,The Land of Oz contains essays by major Oz experts-including award-winning author Harlan Ellison-certain to give the reader even greater insight to the world and characters created by one of America's most influential children's book writers.
This is the second in a series of definitive new and collectable Oz editions prepared in conjunction with The Baum Family Trust.
