Eltanin Publishing's Oz Series - #10
~~ includes ALL the original illustrations (over 110) by John R. Neill, many of them in color, and a new Preface by Oz expert and Eltanin Editor Joseph Nusbaum. ~~
From the Editor's Preface:
"...Baum had initially written an unpublished fairy tale in 1905 entitled King Rinkitink. The manuscript was tucked away for over a decade until Baum decided in 1916 to repurpose it for one of his annual Oz books, redrafting the ending to bring in characters from the other Oz books to close the story.
Though some readers may consider Rinkitink less of an "Oz" story -- almost the entire book takes place outside of Oz, and Oz characters are conveniently brought in at the eleventh hour to end on an Ozzy note -- it remains a noteworthy edition to the series. On its own merits, Rinkitink is one of the most inventive and exciting stories Baum ever wrote."

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
These are the best and beautifully done. The illustrations are wonderful. Make sure before purchasing one of the Oz books, that you make sure it is from Eltanin Publishing. They are the very best versions.
All of L. Frank Baum's Oz books are fantastic. The trouble with this specific book is not the book itself but the publisher: Bottom of the Hill Publishing. It's more like bottom of the barrel. The cover is pixelated and there are hardly any illustrations, if any at all, in any of their Oz books. The pages appear to have been typed up and printed at anyone's home computer. Do yourself a favor, don't buy from Bottom of the Hill Publishing.
