"The more we know, the more we find out we don’t know."

Apparently, Cap'n Bill and Trot are characters in two of Baum's other books, making this Oz installment a crossover, but I haven't read those. It in no way detracted from the story, nor was I confused, so it is not necessary to read those books (The Sea Fairies and Sky Island) to understand this one.

There's a LOT going on in this story: lots of new characters, new lands, political upheaval; it's almost too much to follow for a children's book. It's a very exciting adventure though - much more than some of the Oz books, which are more lackadaisical and whimsical.

QUESTION: How many of you would be willing to join an Oz group chat? Do you think it's a good idea? I imagine something where Oz fans could discuss the lore and the Oz material that's been released over the years in some nice conversation. Something for true Oz fans to connect in. Maybe it could be on here or on another site? Maybe a Discord chat. Let me know what you think!

The fifth, of only six surviving original John R. Neill paintings  for the Oz series depicts the delicious inhabitants of “Bunbury” from “The Emerald City of Oz. Only three Oz books had color illustrations derived from Neill paintings. He made 17 paintings for each of two books, “Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz “ 1908) and “The Emerald City of Oz” (1910). They were used as 16 color plates and a front cover in each title. Neill also created an original painting for the dust jacket illustration used with “The Road to Oz.” #lfrankbaum #johnrneill #theemeraldcityofoz #watercolor #illustration #glinda #dorothy #ozma #childrensbooks #thewizardofoz #wizardofoz #theartofoz  #oz  thelandofoz #internationalwizardofozclub #lostart

Dorothy: Patented Clockwork Mechanical Man. Does everything but live. For Thinking, wind number 1 under left arm. For Speaking, wind number 2 under right arm. For Walking & Action, wind number 3, middle of back. Guaranteed to work perfectly for a thousand years. . . .

"That proves you are unusual," returned the Scarecrow, "and I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed." -- L. Frank Baum

The Deadly Poppy Fields was always my favorite part in Wizard of Oz, both book and movie. "- I always did like flowers, said the Lion. - They seem so helpless and frail. But there are none in the forest so bright as these.
They now came upon more and more of the big scarlet poppies, and fewer and fewer of the other flowers; and soon they found themselves in the midst of a great meadow of poppies. Now it is well known that when there are many of these flowers together their odor is so powerful that anyone who breathes it falls asleep, and if the sleeper is not carried away from the scent of the flowers, he sleeps on and on... forever. But Dorothy did not know this, nor could she get away from the bright red flowers that were everywhere about; so presently her eyes grew heavy and she felt she must sit down to rest and to sleep.
But the Tin Woodman would not let her do this.
- We must hurry and get back to the road of yellow brick before dark, he said; and the Scarecrow agreed with him. So they kept walking until Dorothy could stand no longer. Her eyes closed in spite of herself and she forgot where she was and fell among the poppies, fast asleep.
- What shall we do? asked the Tin Woodman.
- If we leave her here she will die, said the Lion. - The smell of the flowers is killing us all. I myself can scarcely keep my eyes open, and the dog is asleep already.
It was true; Toto had fallen down beside his little mistress. But the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman, not being made of flesh, were not troubled by the scent of the flowers.
- Run fast, said the Scarecrow to the Lion, - and get out of this deadly flower bed as soon as you can. We will bring the little girl with us, but if you should fall asleep you are too big to be carried.

The forth of only six original paintings John R. Neill did for the Oz series  that is known to survive. This watercolor from THE EMERALD CITY OF OZ depicts the Wizard stopping a Boy to ask “Is this Rigmarole Town?” #lfrankbaum #johnrneill #theemeraldcityofoz #watercolor #landofoz #theartofoz #thewizardofoz #wizardofoz #lostart #illustration #childrensbooks
"What a remarkable thing, to be alive!"

Dorothy is back in a new Oz adventure (this time being blown there by storm at sea) and we get to see a whole set of new Ozian characters for the trip: the Hungry Tiger, Princess Langwidere, Billina and Tiktok.

We also travel to the land of Nome to rescue the Queen of Ev and her children. Will Ozma and Dorothy be able to rescue everyone?

I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a wider glimpse of the land of Oz and it's surrounding world, anyone who wants to see the continue adventures of Dorothy and the Cowardly Lion, and anyone who just really loved Oz.

There is no place like home - L. Frank Baum, The Wizard of Oz
.
🏡
Growing up an Army brat and moving ever 2-4 years, I never had a "home" until my dad's retirement, even then nothing felt quite like home.  I always wanted something else.  It wasn't until after I was married that my husband and I moved to live in a small town on a wooded 5 acres that I felt at home.
🏡
I love the serenity, listening to the wind blowing through the trees, seeing the night sky, having a wrap around porch and the sounds of wildlife in our area.  Of course, as a horror fan, I do creep myself out sometimes when I have to go out at night or when the dogs bark uncontrollably for no reason.  And yes Johann @jobis89, we own an axe. 😱
🏡
#summeroffright - house, Dorothy's house landed on the Wicked Witch
#beyondthepagesjuly - book crush.  The Tin Man was always my favorite.  I learned so much about the characters by reading the books.  Tin Man made the ultimate sacrifice of life for love which is why he wanted a heart. ❤  How could he not be your favorite?

I unpacked these 2 early 1900's L. Frank Baum books from the Oz series awhile ago and I just can't stop gazing at them every time I walk by them 😍 I found them a couple years ago at a thrift shop for a pittance. I thought they were reproductions but they were printed in 1907 and 1918 and have beautiful art nouveau illustrations ❤❤❤ I'm trying to find a good place to display them but storage space is thin right now. I still haven't replaced the bookshelves we donated before the move 🙄
