The Kindle edition by Eltanin publishing is great as they include all the original illustrations - in color where they were color illustrations in the original. I know there are free editions available on kindle, but the Eltanin editions are worth the 99 cents.
Text to speech works, which is great for children and the vision impaired.
Published in 1914, TIK-TOK OF OZ is the eighth of Baum's Oz novels, and it returns to the episodic narrative that Baum tended to favor. In this particular story, Queen Anne Soforth of the Oogaboos sets out with her small army to conquer the world. At the same time, Betsy Bobbin and a mule named Hank are swept overboard at sea and meet The Shaggy Man, who is in search of his long lost brother. Along with the Rose Princess, they encounter first Polychrome, who has accidentally slipped off the rainbow again, and ultimately Tik-Tok, who has been thrown down a dry well. When they meet the Oogaboos, they decide to unite to conquer the Nome King, who may have The Shaggy Man's brother held prisoner.
The Shaggy Man, the Rose Princess, Polychrome, and Queen Anne Soforth are appealing characters, and the story sends them sliding through a tube to the other side of the world for an encounter with the Great Jinjin Tittiti-Hoochoo--but in truth the book feels very much like a rehash of OZMA OF OZ, and it lacks the spark of Baum's best works. Not in the front rank of Oz novels, but fans old and new will enjoy it.
