Description

Enjoy this new Oz story, founded on and continuing the famous Oz stories of L. Frank Baum and written by his great-grandson!

There is trouble in Oz, and Dorothy is needed. With Glinda's help, she and Toto return to Oz. Joined by her old friends the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Lion, Dorothy sets out on a perilous jounrey to stop the crafty Jester from using the power of the Wicked Witch of the West's Wand to turn the people of Oz into dolls.

But that seems to be the least of Dorothy's problems as her travels lead her into a treacherous maze, a cave of very hungry dragons, an evil spell that could destroy the Yellow Brick Road—and the daunting knowledge that it's up to her to stop the Jester's terrible plan.

"Dorothy is called back to Oz by Glinda, the Good Witch of the South, because the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion need help. The great-grandson of L. Frank Baum here adds to the Oz canon with a story that is true to the originals. Oz fans will welcome this new adventure."—Booklist

With 50 charming illustrations by Elizabeth Miles. Afterword by Peter Glassman.
