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.
