We like to think of this volume as "The Party Book of Oz." Almost everyone loves a party and when Ozma has a birthday party with notables from every part of fairyland attending-well -, it is just like attending Ozma's party in person. You meet the famous of Oz, and lots of others, such as Queen Zixi of Ix, John Dough, Chick the Cherub, the Queen of Merryland, Para Bruin the rubber bear and-best of all-Santa Claus himself Of course there are lots of adventures on that famous road to Oz before the party, during which Dorothy, on her way to Oz for the fourth time, meets such heart-warming characters as the Shaggy Man, Button-Bright, and lovely Polychrome, daughter of the rainbow.
