The Marvelous Land Of Oz Book Review #29

The Marvelous Land Of Oz

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

First issued in 1904, L. Frank Baum’s The Marvelous Land of Oz is the story of the wonderful adventures of the young boy named Tip as he travels throughout the many lands of Oz. Here he meets with our old friends the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman, as well as some new friends like Jack Pumpkinhead, the Wooden Sawhorse, the Highly Magnified Woggle-Bug, and the amazing Gump. How they thwart the wicked plans of the evil witch Mombi and overcome the rebellion of General Jinjur and her army of young women is a tale as exciting and endearing today as it was when first published over eighty years ago.

My Thoughts

I enjoyed this book as much as I did The Wizard Of Oz. I recognised some characters from the Return To Oz movie that I went to see on a rare visit to the cinema when I was younger.
I know the movie didn’t do very well and everyone criticises it now, but I have to say, I loved it when I watched it at the cinema!
