BLURB FROM THE COVER

The tenth, eleventh, and twelfth titles of the iconic Oz series, now in one collection!

In Rinkitink in Oz, Prince Inga of Pingaree, King Rinkitink and Bilbil the goat set off on a series of adventures that lead them to the underground kingdom of the Nome King. But will Inga’s bravery and courage be enough to save his kidnapped parents and all their subjects?

In The Lost Princess of Oz, Ozma, the Ruler of Oz, has disappeared, so Dorothy, the Wizard, the Cowardly Lion, and other friends must search the vast Land of Oz to find her. But can they?

In The Tin Woodman of Oz, the Tin Woodman sets off on a quest to find the lovely Munchkin, Nimmie Amee. Once upon a time, she and the Woodman were going to marry, but then the Wicked Witch of the West turned him into tin. Can he find Nimmie? And will she remember him?

Together in one book, three more classic titles in L. Frank Baum’s fairy-tale series about the world of Oz. 

EXTRACT 

If you have a map of the Land of Oz handy, you will find that the great Nonestic Ocean washes the shores of the Kingdom of Rinkitink, between which the Land of Oz lies a strip of the country of the Nome King and a Sandy Dessert. The Kingdom of Rinkitink isn’t very big and lies close to the ocean, all the houses and the King’s palace being built near the shore. The people live much upon the water, boating and fishing, and the wealth of Rinkitink is gained from trading along the coat and with the island near it.

RINKITINK IN OZ

REVIEW 

RINKITINK IN OZ

This was my first read-through. I enjoyed Rinkitink in Oz. I must admit I mis-read the name about a hundred times. Too many in’s. I found Rinkitink a very amusing character. The Nome King made another appearance and was as amusing as ever though I’m a little tired of him. I liked the mix of new and old characters.

THE LOST PRINCESS OF OZ

This was my first read-through. I enjoyed The Lost Princess of Oz. It was nice to read about all the characters coming together to find Ozma. Toto speaks for the first time and I thought this was funny. I like how different groups came together to find Ozma because other things had gone missing.

THE TIN WOODMAN OF OZ

This was my first read-through. I enjoyed The Tin Woodman of Oz the most out of the three books collected in volume 4. I liked the mix of new and old characters. I liked the giantess Mrs Yoop who transformed everyone in the hope they would remain her prisoner forever. I found the tin woodman and the tin soldier amusing especially when Nimmie Amee turns out to be the wife of a man made of different body parts including tin. The Tin Woodman of Oz is amusing.
