Return to L. Frank Baum's wonderful world of Oz with this illustrated children's book series.
Mombi, perhaps the wickedest witch in Oz history, sets out to find the legendary Lost King of Oz whom she enchanted many years before. Pajuka the Goose and Snip, a lively Gillikin boy, assist her--while Dorothy wishes her way to California and returns to Oz with a motion picture stunt dummy costumed as king.
Snip is thrown down a well by Mombi, but rescues a tailor with magic ears from the underground city of Blankenberg. Kabumpo the Elegant Elephant carries the entire party to Emerald City, but a magic feather has lured Ozma, the Wizard, and the other Oz celebrities to the deserted kingdom of Morrow. Will the Lost King be found--and will he reclaim the throne of Oz from Ozma?

"The land of Oz has managed to fascinate each new generation. . . . The Oz books continue to exert their spell . . . and those who read [them] are often made what they were not--imaginative, tolerant, alert to wonders." --Gore Vidal
"I was raised with the Oz books, and their enchantment, humor and excitement remain with me. They are still a joy and a treasure. I welcome this Oz revival." --Stephen R. Donaldson
