Overview

Return to L. Frank Baum’s wonderful world of Oz with this illustrated children’s book series.
 
Legendary Umbrella Island flies magically through the air . . . until it careens smack into the forehead of an extremely unpleasant giant! Meanwhile, Speedy—the New York lad—is making a soaring trip skyward himself, propelled by an erupting geyser and encased in Terrybubble, the jolly, living skeleton of a huge dinosaur.
 
It’s soon up to Speedy to save the Princess of Umbrella Island from both the demands of Loxo the Giant and the warring countries of Roaraway and Norroway.
 
Praise for the Oz series
 
“Where the young stay young and the old grow young forever—these books are for readers of all ages.”—Ray Bradbury
 
“The land of Oz has managed to fascinate each new generation. . . . The Oz books continue to exert their spell . . . and those who read [them] are often made what they were not—imaginative, tolerant, alert to wonders.”—Gore Vidal
 
“I was raised with the Oz books, and their enchantment, humor and excitement remain with me. They are still a joy and a treasure. I welcome this Oz revival.”—Stephen R. Donaldson
