Ozma of Oz

The Wizard of Oz


Author: L. Frank Baum

Illustrator: John R Neill

Baum's third magical adventure set in Oz reunites readers and listeners of all ages with Dorothy Gale of Kansas as she makes her second journey over the rainbow. Here you will meet such beloved old friends as the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion. You'll also meet new favorites like the Hungry Tiger, whose appetite is never quite satisfied; Billina, the tart-tongued hen; and that ozzy marvel: Tik-Tok the mechanical clock-work man. And the Nome King everyone's favorite petulant villain makes his first dastardly appearance.

Ozma of Oz is one of the most colorful of all the Oz books. Everywhere you look in the first edition there are wonderful color illustrations by John R. Neill. This lavish facsimile has them all! It features all of John R. Neill's 42 full-page, full-color pictures and full-color endpapers, all of Neill's 21 bold, captivating, two-color drawings, Neill's original four-color pictorial binding design, featuring Dorothy, Billina, and Ozma entwined in Neill's famous Oz logo on the front, and the Cowardly Lion and Hungry Tiger entwined in the logo on back. All this color and all these pictures add up to a sumptuous journey to Oz, decorating one of Baum's most invigorating romps!
