The Magic of Oz by L. Frank Baum

The Magic of Oz (Oz, #13)The Magic of Oz by L. Frank Baum

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Another mix of old and new characters, but as we’re getting to the end of the series, the new characters are sort of shuffled off onto others for safe-keeping.

We meet a new person a Hyup by the name of Kiki Aru who knows the magic word for transformations. He is somehow manipulated by our old nemesis Ruggedo, the former Nome King. Of course this leads to nothing but trouble, while Dorothy and friends are trying to prepare for Ozma’s birthday feast.

With the help of some neglected old friends everything is brought to rights, and Ozma’s party is the best ever. Ruggedo is finally taken care of in a way where he won’t cause anymore trouble, and Kiki is sent off to become a normal boy living in Oz.

It’s an interesting story and we meet many new beasts and wonderful things in the Land of Oz, but the Oz books all have a similar plot: A group sets out on a journey and a different group has to go rescue them. Somehow it still works.
