1. The Girl in the Chicken Coop


The wind blew hard and joggled the water of the ocean, sending ripples
across its surface. Then the wind pushed the edges of the ripples
until they became waves, and shoved the waves around until they became
billows. The billows rolled dreadfully high: higher even than the tops
of houses. Some of them, indeed, rolled as high as the tops of tall
trees, and seemed like mountains; and the gulfs between the great
billows were like deep valleys.

All this mad dashing and splashing of the waters of the big ocean,
which the mischievous wind caused without any good reason whatever,
resulted in a terrible storm, and a storm on the ocean is liable to cut
many queer pranks and do a lot of damage.

At the time the wind began to blow, a ship was sailing far out upon the
waters. When the waves began to tumble and toss and to grow bigger and
bigger the ship rolled up and down, and tipped sidewise--first one way
and then the other--and was jostled around so roughly that even the
sailor-men had to hold fast to the ropes and railings to keep
themselves from being swept away by the wind or pitched headlong into
the sea.

And the clouds were so thick in the sky that the sunlight couldn't get
through them; so that the day grew dark as night, which added to the
terrors of the storm.

The Captain of the ship was not afraid, because he had seen storms
before, and had sailed his ship through them in safety; but he knew
that his passengers would be in danger if they tried to stay on deck,
so he put them all into the cabin and told them to stay there until
after the storm was over, and to keep brave hearts and not be scared,
and all would be well with them.

Ozma of Oz is a MUST READ. Children and adults alike will love Ozma of Oz. The full color illustrations are amazing. I also read The Wizard of Oz, and much prefer this installation in the Oz series. New characters like Princess Langwidere, a head collecting ruler, Tik Tok, the mechanical man, and Ozma are delightful and dynamic. Dorothy's adventure in this book is far more interesting, with more cliff hanger moments and evil tyrant, the Gnome King. Overall this book is far more intricate and includes handfulls of new characters and new stories that make the land of Oz that much more wonderful.

Ozma of Oz by L. Frank Baum is the third story in the fic­tional series tak­ing place in the land of Oz. While cer­tainly not as pop­u­lar the first story in the series the rest are very imag­i­na­tiveas well. on a vaca­tion from Kansas to Aus­tralia, Uncle Henry and his niece Dorothy Gale are caught in a fierce storm which throws Dorothy off the ship. Dorothy finds her­self in a crate with Bil­lina, a yel­low hen. As the sur­vivors wash ashore, Dorothy dis­cov­ers that Bil­lina can talk and guess they are in a”fairy coun­try” but not Oz because of the seashore. Soon they meet Tik-Tok, a mechan­i­cal man and go to the Land of Ev. There our trav­el­ers meet Ozma, the Tin Woods­man, the Cow­ardly Lion, The Scare­crow as well as the Hun­gry Tiger who are there also to res­cue the royal family. Ozma of Oz by L. Frank Baum is less dark then the pre­vi­ous books, more fairy tale like but all fun­nier and less annoy­ing. I loved the parts where Ozma’s army, which con­sisted of many offi­cers but only one solider, was part of. From some rea­son that struck me as hillerious. I have to say that the rea­son I enjoyed Ozma of Oz more than the pre­vi­ous two is because the nar­ra­tive is more stream­lined. There are less side sto­ries and bet­ter focus on a sin­gle goal which is more tan­gi­ble than just an idea (“home”). Also, there is less chau­vin­ism and racism than the pre­vi­ous books, espe­cially book 2 The Mar­velous Land of Oz. The char­ac­ters, espe­cially the female ones, are no-nonsense and say what they mean straight and to the point. This is a fun read, short and worth the time spent.
