Journey through Oz part 2

The Marvelous Land of Oz is the sequel to Wonderful Wizard of Oz and second book in the Oz e-book collection I am reading.

I found the 2nd book not as innocent as the 1st but the theme of friendship is still consistently there.

I had a hard time at the start since I was not compelled by Tip, Jack the Pumpkinhead and Saw Horse as much as Dorothy and Toto.  But, the magic was relived upon the arrival of the familiar and well-loved characters Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman.  It was nice to see their growth as rulers. I loved their tidbits of wisdom here and there, which stems from the gifts they got from the Wizard of Oz.  I also loved how Glinda the Good played a crucial role in restoring balance in the Emerald City.

On to the next adventure in Oz… Ozma and Dorothy meets.
