Ozma of Oz (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Grade 3-6-Dorothy Gale returns in this third book in L. Frank Baum's series about the Land of Oz. In this adventure, Dorothy is tossed overboard from a ship and, when she reaches land, discovers that she is in the fairy realm of Ev. Accompanied by a talking chicken named Billina, Dorothy becomes embroiled in a quest to rescue Queen Ev and her ten children from the Nome King's evil clutches. Even with the help of her old friends-the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, the Cowardly Lion, and Ozma of Oz-it is up to Dorothy to save the day. John McDonough's smooth narration is a perfect fit for this timeless classic. The deep timbre of his voice soothes listeners, evoking the magic found in these far away lands. His respect for the characters and the story is evident in the reading, making even the most outrageous events seem plausible. A solid purchase for any collection.-Veronica Schwartz, Des Plaines Public Library, IL.
