The Emerald City of Oz

833135Goodreads Says:    Join Dorothy and the Wonderful Wizard as they take Aunt Em and Uncle Henry on a fabulous tour of Oz. During their journey they encounter such amazing and amusing people as King Kleaver with his Spoon Brigade and Miss Cuttenclip of the land of paper dolls. But while Dorothy and her friends play, the wicked Nome King has joined forces with the terrible Whimsies, the fearsome Growleywogs, and the evil Phanfasms in a plot to capture the Emerald City. Will Dorothy's friends discover the danger before it's too late?

My Thoughts:

-    I finally realized that these books are more about the land of Oz than they are about the stories and characters. 

-    I liked that this book was a grand tour of Oz and its unique and fantastic inhabitants. Baum had quite the imagination.

-    I would love to hang out in Fuddlecumjig. I'd put puzzles together all day. 

-    It was fun that Aunt Em and Uncle Henry finally got to visit Oz.

-    I liked how this one wrapped up. This story is setup to be last book in the series, but there are more books. I would have been more than satisfied if this had been the last Oz book.

  1. I guess Oz could be considered a character but I'm thinking this series was needlessly long.

  2. I'm not sure I want to read these anymore, lol. I'll read at least the first book, but I'm not sure about the series.
