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.
