5 stars Pure fun. The first sequel to The Wizard of Oz (i.e. book 2 of 14). Baum takes the reader on further adventures of the Scarecrow, who is the King of the Emerald City, and the Tin Woodman, who has become the Emperor of the Winkies. The new characters of Jack Pumpkinhead, the Saw-Horse, the Woggle-Bug and the Gump along with the young hero Tip make for a book filled with more magical adventures.
