This was just a quick, delightful re-read of a book I read so long ago that it was the same as a first read. After All Clear I needed something totally different. This was certainly totally different. I loved all the Oz books when I was young.
The Marvelous Land of Oz is the second Oz book.
In this sequel to the original book, the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman are back with a boy named Tip as well as a host of new characters, including Mr. H. M. Woggle-Bug, Princess Ozma of Oz, Dr. Nikidik, and Old Mombi. When the Scarecrow, now the ruler of the Emerald City, is driven out by General Jinjur and her all-girl army, his friends--the Tin Woodman, a boy named Tip, and Jack Pumpkinhead--try to restore peace. Dorothy isn't in this story, though she is mentioned frequently by her friends.
