Overview

Unlike the classic Oz series (The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its sequel The Marvelous Land of Oz, Dover), this is not a single book-length story, but a collection of 14 surprises. But Mo, the land where these stores all take place, is like Oz in many ways: it is also a land of enchantment where marvelous things happen, where people do not die, and where animals can talk.

The landscape of Mo abounds in things children love to eat, and everything anyone wants grow from its trees. The stories of "The Strange Adventures of the King's Head," telling of the Monarch's battle with the Purple Dragon and of the woodchipper who fashioned him a new head in exhange for his daughter's hand; of wicked "King Scowleyow and His Cast-Iron Man" who is a precursor of Tik-Tok; of "Duchess Bredenbutta's Visit to Turveyland," where everyone stands on his head at dinner and handles knife and fork with his toes; and the other surprising tales are as richly imagined and skillfully told as any of L. Frank Baum's classics.
