Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz (Paperback)
Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz: A Faithful Record of Their Amazing Adventures in an Underground World; and How with the Aid of Their Friends Zeb Hugson, Eureka the Kitten, and Jim the Cab-Horse, They Finally Reached the Wonderful Land of Oz is the fourth book set in the Land of Oz written by L. Frank Baum. It reunites Dorothy with the humbug Wizard from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. In Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz Dorothy is joining Uncle Henry in California at Hugson's Ranch, on their way home from Australia. She strikes up an acquaintance with Hugson's nephew and her second cousin, Zeb. Dorothy, her cat Eureka and Zeb are riding a buggy when an earthquake starts and opens a crevice sending them hurtling into the bowels of the earth. Dorothy, Eureka, Jim, Zeb, and the buggy find themselves in the land of the Mangaboos, a vegetable people who accuse them of causing the Rain of Stones. Just as they are about to be sentenced to death, a hot air balloon falls out of the sky, and in the basket is the Wizard of Oz, whom Dorothy last met as he floated away from the Emerald City. Lyman Frank Baum was an American author of children's books, best known for writing The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He wrote thirteen novel sequels, nine other fantasy novels, and a host of other works. His works predicted such century-later commonplaces as television, laptop computers, wireless telephones and others.
