  2. 4.5, but for Oz s sake I ll err up instead of down I ve read reviews that suggest that Glinda of Oz is the darkest, possibly because Baum knew he was dying at that point I don t actually see explicit darkness, but I do think that there is an element of fear in this one that there isn t in the rest, that things might not actually turn out right Of course, as an adult, it is clear to me that they re going to figure it out, but I remember as a kid liking Glinda of Oz less even while knowing tha 4.5, but for Oz s sake I ll err up instead of down I ve read reviews that suggest that Glinda of Oz is the darkest, possibly because Baum knew h...

  3. I had the pleasure of seeing and holding this original printed edition in person This book is beautiful and, notably, it is the last in the series to be written by Lyman, himself It is a fantasy story about a magical world with all the happy endings one could hope for.

  4. Baum ended his Oz series on a strong note Many people say that this is the darkest Oz book I would disagree dark is not the word to describe this story Serious, perhaps, and it had a stronger moral message than some others It also had an actual plot, and the book followed a logical structure, with set up, complications, rising action, climax, resolution So many of Baum s books are plotless fairy land wanderings, so I was plea...

  6. I haven t read an Oz book since my Children s Literature class back in my early college days The Wizard of Oz really came to life when I realized that within that well known children s story was a political statement on bimetallism ie getting off the gold standard Okay, I know that Baum denied it but, come on, silver slippers and yellow brick road emerald city ie greenbacks If it wasn t deliberately written to advocate bimetallism, it s one of the happiest coincidences in literature I haven t read an Oz book since my Children s Literature class back in my early college days The Wizard of Oz really came to life when I realized that within that well known children s story was a political statement on bimetallism ie getting off the gold standard Okay, I know that Baum denied it but, come on, silver slippers and yellow brick road emerald city ie greenbacks If it wasn t deliberately written to advocate bimetallism, it s one of the happiest coincidences in literature Anyway, Glinda of Oz came onto my radar because of the new Oz movie coming out and I wondered what kind of political statement it might make Regardless, I plunged into this piece of children s literature with the same attitude as Dorothy when she wishe...

  7. Good and readable and interesting, but not anything all that special It would definitely be worth reading aloud Not sure that the series had enough of a trajectory for me, considering this was Baum s last book He never ran out of good ideas though And this one is a bit less of a travelogue 3.5 of 5.

  8. This book features Ozma in full diplomatic peacekeeper mode as she embarks on a mission to negotiate between two warring factions in hopes of putting an end to their war and restoring peace to that corner of Oz Up until now, there have been mentions here and there about her responsibilities in this area, but in practice, we don t really get to see her that hands on of a ruler Though she supposedly can see everything in her Magic Picture, she tends to miss a heck of a lot, and often only interv This book features Ozma in full diploma...
