The Shaggy Man goes searching for his brother Tik-Tok as warlike royals stir up trouble in this imaginative adventure in the Oz series.
When Queen Ann of Oogaboo raises an army to take over Oz, Gilda the Good magically rearranges their path to send them into a fog. Meanwhile, the Shaggy Man has gone in search of his brother Tik-Tok, who’s been tossed into a well by the wicked Nome King. On his journey, the Shaggy Man encounters Betsy Bobbin of Oklahoma, the Rainbow’s daughter Polychrome, a royal rose named Princess Ozga—and Queen Ann herself, who is very angry at being lost.
When Queen Ann hears of the Nome King’s fortune, she changes course and heads for his underground kingdom, taking Tik-Tok with her. Now, with his brother lost once again, the Shaggy Man’s adventure has only just begun—and he’ll need all the friends, magic, and luck he can muster.
Can the queen of Oogaboo, a small country in an isolated corner of Oz, take over all of Oz? Talking roses, Shaggy Man and Betsy from Oklahoma are but a few of the unusual characters in Tik-Tok of Oz, the eighth Oz novel by L. Frank Baum, and the first to bring a girl other than Dorothy to that enchanted land. This facsimile edition features 12 color plates and nearly 80 black-and-white drawings by Oz artist John R. Neill.
