Ozma of OzOzma of Oz published on July 29 1907 was the third book of L Frank Baum's Oz series It was the first in which Baum was clearly intending a series of Oz books Where at the end of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Dorothy's silver shoes were lost in the desert at the end of Ozma of Oz Glinda tells her the magic belt she could wish herself home with woul. The original title for this was Ozma of Oz A Record of Her Adventures with Dorothy Gale of Kansas Billina the Yellow Hen the Scarecrow the Tin Woodsman Tik Tok the Cowardly Lion and the Hungry Tiger; Besides Other Good People too Numerous to Mention Faithfully Recorded HereinYou gotta think Baum was just fucking with his readers at this point L Frank Baum Full Time Author Part Time PrickThis time around Dorothy is on a voyage to Australia to help soothe her Uncle Henry's rattled nerves running a farm with hair brain heartless cowardly help will do that to you when a storm washes her overboard She ends up in a fairyland as per usual and from there her journey takes her on an adventure which does not uite live up to the epic nature of the well known film The Wizard of Oz but is entertaining nonethelessAlong the way she meets many interesting and fun new characters like Tik Tok the wind up machine a many headed princess the subterranean Nome King and my favorite Billina the smart and sassy talking chicken As that ridiculously long subtitle suggests Dorothy also reunites with her old pals from her previous adventures The story drags occasionally and the plot is not masterly Seldom does the action near nail biting excitement It's Baum's inventive character creations that are the real draw He's also good at sprinkling into his dialogue some clever double entendre and light gibes though his intended victims probably barely smarting from the ineffectual attacksBaum knew his audience was young and female and while his stories can be enjoyed by all there is definitely a feminine leaning The femalemale ratio of characters is heavily in favor of women or specifically girls The main character is a girl The rulers of the fairylands tend to be princesses The wizards are often women and you may recall the one male wizard turned out to be a fraud uite frankly I think this is a refreshing kind of world building for its timeRating Note This feels like 35 stars

I’m going to keep reading these books just because I love the whimsical and colorful world of Oz that L Frank Baum paints on each page of his stories but I think it’s clear with this one he may have experienced a bit of writers fatigue if you want to call it that Barely any of the story takes place in Oz it takes place in another land that I’ve already forgotten the name of In this case I wish Oz had been featured again these books are the Oz books after all Baum seems to have the strange habit of adding seven or eight new characters to his books but also needs to include all of the previous characters from his other books Jinjur the Tin Woodman the Scarecrow etc It makes for a story that each time feels a little weaker and dependent on the previous ones All in all though I love the world of Oz It’s tough to find another book series with a world uite like this one I can’t wait to read the rest of the books and I’m confident that Baum still has some good wholesome stories hidden up his sleeve
