The Scarecrow of Oz by L. Frank Baum

Trot and Cap’n Bill end up shipwrecked near the Land of Oz. A friendly Ork flies them to Jinxland on the outer edge of Oz. There they encounter a wicked king and a gardener boy in love with a princess. Glinda the Good sends the Scarecrow to help them defeat the king and come to the main part of Oz.

The Scarecrow of Oz is another great Oz book. There are a couple new characters (Trot and Cap’n Bill) and lots of old favorites (Glinda, the Scarecrow, Button Bright, Dorothy, Ozma, and so on). There is not as much wordplay in this one, but there is some great action and excitement. I highly recommend this book to Oz fans!
