With Bill, a live iron weathercock, they visit a Wizard’s Garden and discover Urtha, a lovely girl made all of flowers—and proceed to fall, swim, explode, sail, and fly above and below Oz and Ev. Grampa and company eventually meet Dorothy herself, travelling with a Forgetful Poet in search of the missing princess of Perhaps City who has been condemned to marry a monster!
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
