Overview

The Emerald City of Oz (Oz Series #6) by L. Frank Baum

In this sixth book of Baum's Land of Oz series, Dorothy takes her Aunt Em and indebted Uncle Henry on a tour of Oz. There her guardians meet a wide variety of beings, from the paper dolls of Miss Cuttenclip to the pastries of Bunbury, as well as the familiar Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and Billina the Yellow Hen. All is not well, however, for the jealous and vengeful Nome King Roquat wishes to seize the land of Oz. The old soldier Gulph agrees to set out in search of allies for the Nome Army, and he encounters an array of disturbing creatures, from the strangely disproportionate Whimsies to the evil Phantasms. It will take the curious magic and ingenuity of the citizens of Oz to overcome the enemy and protect their precious Emerald City.

The Emerald City of Oz is the most exciting book ever!It is based on the classic The Wizard of oz.This book is the perfect book for young readers.Dorothy and her aunt and uncle move to Ozbut the Nome King wants his magic belt back that Dorothy and Ozma stole so he plans an attack against the people of Oz.It may be challenging for readers 4th grade or under.Above average students will most likely know or guess what will happen next.I think that The Emerald City of Oz is a stupendous book because they go on adventures and meet so many different kinds of creatures and things.For example when Dorothy and her friends meet all the people of Oz made of food or puzzle pieces or even paper!If you want an intresting fantasy to read this one is the one!It will take your breath away!~!~!~!
