The Road To Oz, L. Frank Baum

4 stars
So, we now own the complete Oz set in one volume and have completed the fifth book in the series. Baum did it again with this installment and has written a book that does not disappoint. Many are the roads before us but only one will lead to Oz and herein is a new tale of Dorothy's adventures as she attempts to reach the Emerald City in time for Ozma's birthday party. Along the way the reader is greeted by new and old friends: The Shaggy Man, Button-Bright, King Dox, Polychrome the Rainbow's daughter, King Kick-a-Bray, The Musicker, Johnny Dooit, Tick-Tock, Billina, The Wizard, Jack Pumpkinhead, Tin Woodman, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, Hungry Tiger, and Ozma to name a few.
