They flee towards the Emerald City, now ruled by the Scarecrow, only to find it under attack by General Jinjur and her all-female army. Tip and Jack help the Scarecrow make his way to the land now ruled by his old friend the Tin Woodman. Can this small group of friends, new and old, find a way to defeat Jinjur and restore Oz to its rightful ruler? The second in L. Frank Baum's Oz series, The Marvelous Land of Oz is a perfect book for those who want to know what happened to the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, Glinda the Good, and other Oz favorites.
