This is volume 2 of the "The Complete Oz" series. It is a large, easy to read edition, perfect for any fan of the Oz series. Another reviewer commented that this edition is not complete - they are absolutely wrong. I have both volumes of the set and it is complete and a worthwhile puchase. My 11 year old daughter loves it!!

I understand that Baum's Oz stories are now out of copyright and that this book was compiled by these freely available stories. I apologise if I'm wrong. But this would take into account the somewhat shoddy layout that this and Volume 2 possess.
Lines of text will inexplicably break into two paragraphs. Inverted commas are in the wrong places. Capital letters of names come and go. While it does no harm in the reading of such lovely tales (my first time and enjoying them immensely), these grammatical and printing errors do jar a smooth reading. Punctuation and the like should be invisible to the reader and, at times, I can't help wishing that the publishers had taken just a little bit more effort and its production.
Also, two columns would have made this so much easier to read, both for the eye and for ease in reading.
It should be noted that these annoyances can't ruin a good tale, and the Oz books are good tales, so points lost only for the publication, not for the content.

There are two books with the same title. One by Trilogus Books (gold cover), and one from Seven Treasures Publications (green cover). The reviews are mixed together. I bought the one from Seven Treasures, and it only contains three Oz novels. It's OK, but there are no illustrations, and there will have to be at least volumes three and four to finish the set.

This book contains only "The Road to Oz," "The Emerald City of Oz," and "The Patchwork Girl of Oz." Amazon incorrectly lists this as a paperback edition of The Complete Oz: Volume 2, but it is a different book entirely.

If you want a good value for the complete Oz series this is it. Buy volume 1 and 2. Nice coffee table set of books.
