Few of the Oz books are as crowded with exciting Oz happenings as this one. Not only does it bring Dorothy back to Oz on her second visit, but it introduces her to Princess Ozma. The book relates Ozma's first important adventure and it introduces for the first time such famous Oz characters as Tik-Tok the mechanical man, Billina the hen, the Hungry Tiger and the Nome King. Most of the adventures in this book take place outside Oz, in the Land of Ev and the Nome Kingdom. Scarcely a page fails to quiver with excitement, magic and adventure.
