As the story opens, Dorothy is accompanying her Uncle Henry on a voyage to Australia. A fierce storm blows Dorothy overboard, where she takes refuge in a floating chicken coop. She soon finds herself on the shores of the strange land of Ev, accompanied by a talking chicken named Billina and the wind-up mechanical man Tik-Tok. In order to return home, Dorothy will have to confront the fearsome Wheelers, the strange Princess of Ev, and finally the wicked Nome King. She will get help from old friends such as the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion, but most of all from Ozma, the new Queen of OZ. At the end, Dorothy and Billina will have to solve a terrible riddle to save all their friends...
"Ozma of Oz" is very highly recommended to fans of Marvel Comics' adaptation of the Wizard of Oz novels by L. Frank Baum.
I knew from the day I heard Mr. Shanower was involved that it would be great!
While I don't always agree with Mr. Young's versions of my beloved characters (Tinwoodman and Scarecrow mainly) I love his fun and charming style he's brought to Oz and I am thankful he has brought new life to a deserving series!
My only complaints are with the condition my book arrived in. Creased and dented cover and pages that seem to have moisture damage in spite of being well shrink wrapped and packaged well.
As a collector as well as a reader, this troubles me.
But that aside, I cannot recommend this series enough and cannot imagine a better way to introduce Oz to today's children, especially those too young or unwilling to read a novel. :)
What else can I say? Buy it! And next year get ready for the fourth book (now available in installments) : Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz!
