The Marvelous Land of Oz (Oz, #2)The Marvelous Land of Oz by L. Frank Baum
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

At the end of the Wizard of Oz, the Scarecrow was made King of the Emerald City, Tinman was made ruler of the Winkies, the Lion went back into the forest and Dorothy went back to Kansas. Frank Baum got a thousand letters from children wanting to know more about what happened in Oz. This is why this book and 12 more got written.

In this story we meet Tip, Jack Pumpkinhead, a live sawhorse, the Highly Magnified Woogle-Bug and the Gump. These new characters meet up with the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman. There is an evil witch Mombi who is aiding General Jinjur and her army of young women, no longer content to stay at home and do chores they overthrow the Emerald City.

Good witch Glinda comes to the rescue.

I liked this book better then the Wizard of Oz. The characters had more personality then in the Wizard of Oz. A nice continuation of the story.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
