Few fantasy lands have captured our hearts and imaginations as has the marvelous land of Oz. For over four generations, children and adults alike have reveled in the magical adventures of its beloved folk. Now, for the first time in over seventy years, the second book about Oz is presented here in the same deluxe format as the rare first edition, complete with all 16 of the original John R. Neill color plates, its colorful pictorial binding, and the many black-and-white illustrations that bring it to joyous life.

First issued in 1904, L. Frank Baum's The Marvelous Land of Oz is the story of the wonderful adventures of the young boy named Tip as he travels throughout the many lands of Oz. Here he meets with our old friends the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman, as well as some new friends like Jack Pumpkinhead, the Wooden Sawhorse, the Highly Magnified Woggle-Bug, and the amazing Gump. How they thwart the wicked plans of the evil witch Mombi and overcome the rebellion of General Jinjur and her army of young women is a tale as exciting and endearing today as it was when first published over eighty years ago.

Afterword by Peter Glassman. A facsimile of the rare first edition, complete with all 16 original color plates, a colorful pictorial binding, and over 125 of Neill's drawings. A Books of Wonder(R) Classic.

In this book, the main character is Tip (Princess Ozma). Tip ran away from Mombi and wanted to go to the Emerald City. He did for a little while but ran away again from Captain Jin Jur.
Tip runs away with Jack Pumpkinhead who is his creation and the powder of life which Mombi used to make Jack alive.
On their way there they brought a saw horse to life and used him to help them. They went Emerald City for a brief while because Captain Jin Jur and her army of girls with knitting needles took over the Emerald City. Tip, Jack, the scarecrow, and saw horse all escaped. They went and got help from the tin wood man and H.M. Wogglebug, T.E. They got recaptured and escaped again, but had nowhere to go.
They went to Glinda the Good for help and they figured out there was a missing proncess of Oz and only Mombi knew where she was. So, they went to Emerald City and brought Glinda's army with them. They captured Mombi and she said she transformed Princess Ozma into Tip! She brings her back to normak and now she rules Oz.
I think this book is interesting because of all the adventure and magic. I recommend that you read this book.

In this book, the main character is Tip (Princess Ozma). Tip ran away from Mombi and wanted to go to the Emerald City. He did for a little while but ran away again from Captain Jin Jur.

Tip runs away with Jack Pumpkin Head, which he created, and the Powder of Life which Mombi used to make Jack come alive. On their way they bring a straw horse to life and and use him to help them. Then they go to the Emerald City for a brief time because Captain Jin Jur and her army of girls with knitting needles have taken over the Emerald City. They get recaptured and escape again, but have nowhere to go.

Then they go to Glinda the Good Witch for help. Only then do they figure out that there is a missing princess of Oz and that only Mombi knows where she is. So they go back to the Emerald City with Glinda's army. They capture Mombi and she says that she transformed the Princess of Oz into Tip! Then she brings her back to normal and Tip (now the princess) rules over OZ.

I thought this book was interesting because of all the adventure and magic. I recommend that you read it.
