Continue your Oz adventure with our second collection of L. Frank Baum's novels, with the beautiful original illustrations by John R. Neill. In this collection:
DOROTHY AND THE WIZARD OF OZ (1908)
The Wizard of Oz is back and the Mangaboos have him! These deadly vegetable people also capture the always adventurous Dorothy Gale, her pink kitten Eureka, her cousin Zeb, and their horse, Jim. Will the Wizard be able to conjure his mystical powers to smite the Mangaboos and rescue Dorothy's friends from being sealed alive inside the Black Pit? (Along with The Emerald City of Oz, this book was one of only two Oz books to include watercolor paintings in its original printing.)
THE ROAD TO OZ (1909)
In Dorothy's fourth visit to the Land of Oz, she gathers a new set of memorable friends and traveling companions: the Shaggy Man, Button Bright, and Polychrome, and together they set out once again for the Emerald City. Share their mystical encounters with such oddball creatures as the Musicker and the Scoodlers. See how they escape from the Soup-Kettle and what they found at the Truth Pond. Find out how they are able to cross the Deadly Desert and finally reach the Emerald City.
THE EMERALD CITY OF OZ (1910)
Written to be the final Oz book (though Baum would change his mind three years later with The Patchwork Girl of Oz), The Emerald City brings Dorothy once again to Oz with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry following close behind, seeing for the first time that she wasn't making up all those stories. While Dorothy introduces her family to her many Oz friends, the wicked Nome King is building a massive army of the various nations surrounding Oz, with plans to invade and take the Emerald City for himself. Will Ozma's magic and Oz's small group of allies be enough to fend off the invading Whimsies, Growleywogs, and Phanfasms?
