Lost King of Oz based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
All of the Oz books are wonderfully whimsical and charming! There are 15 books about Oz by L. Frank Baum. After his death, children's author Ruth Plumly Thomson was recruited to continue the histories of Oz. She wrote 17 books about the fairy country and the celebrities within. I am reading them all in order, and the transition from Baum to Thompson is absolutely seamless! I would recommend this book, and the entire series to children of any age (I am 49 years old!).
This is not Frank Baum, but the lady who wrote it knew him and the heart of his storyline. It fits right in with all of the other tales in the OZ series. My sons love the originals so they would know if this was a misfit or not. You won't be disappointed in this sequel. If you love the land of Oz, this book is your happy return trip ticket.
