Dorothy’s adventures in the Land of Oz continue as she brings Aunt Em and Uncle Henry to live in the magical world of witches, wizards, and wonder. Though Dorothy Gale has told them many stories about her frequent visits to the Land of Oz, Aunt Em and Uncle Henry have always thought she was merely a dreamer. But when Dorothy learns that her aunt and uncle are in danger of losing their farm, she makes arrangements with Princess Ozma to bring her guardians to Oz, where they can all live together in safety. While the Wonderful Wizard takes them on a fabulous tour of their new home, however, jealous Nome King Roquat plots to conquer the land. This charming continuation of L.

Book Short Summary:

The Lost Princess of Oz (1917) is the eleventh novel in L. Frank Baum’s beloved Land of Oz series. According to the author, the story began with a letter from a young reader and soon took on a life of its own. When Princess Ozma goes missing from her palace in the Emerald City, and the instruments upon which Glinda the Good Witch and the Wizard of Oz are nowhere to be found, Dorothy bravely gathers a group of trustworthy companions in order to solve the mystery. With Glinda, the Wizard, Button-Bright, Trot, and Betsy Bobbin, Dorothy journeys west across the Land of Oz to Winkie Country. On the plateau of the Yips, they learn that Cayke the cookie cook has lost her magic dishpan before continuing on to the lost lands of Herku. There, the generous Czarover of Herku tells them a tale of the evil Ugu the Shoemaker, a wicked enchanter who lives in a castle high in the mountains of Herku. With her trusted companions at her side, Dorothy is willing to face down even the darkest of dangers in order to not only rescue the Princess, but restore the magical powers of Oz to those who would use them for good. The Lost Princess of Oz unites many of L. Frank Baum’s most cherished characters in a story of wondrous adventure. From the mind of master fantasist L. Frank Baum, The Lost Princess of Oz is a story of mystery, adventure, and the unstoppable power of bravery. Long overshadowed by the film, Baum’s series is required reading for children, adults, and anyone who refuses to let life lose its flavor of fantasy. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of L. Frank Baum’s The Lost Princess of Oz is a classic of children’s literature reimagined for modern readers.

Book Short Summary:

One of the most beloved film musicals of all time, The Wizard of Oz represents an enduring family favorite and cultural classic. Yet there is much more to the story than meets the eye, and the MGM movie is just one of many ways in which it has been represented. In this lively and wide-ranging book, editors Danielle Birkett and Dominic McHugh bring together insights from eleven experts into the varied musical forms this great American myth has taken in the past century. Starting with the early adaptations of L. Frank Baum's story, the book also explores the writing, composition and reception of the MGM film, its importance in queer culture, stage adaptations of the movie, cult classic The Wiz, Stephen Schwartz's Broadway blockbuster Wicked, and the cultural afterlife of the iconic Arlen-Harburg songs. What emerges is a vivid overview of how music - on stage and screen - has been an essential part of the story's journey to become a centerpiece of American culture.

Upon her arrival, she is hailed as a sorceress, liberates a living Scarecrow, meets a man made entirely of tin, and a Lion who seems to be cowardly. But all Dorothy really wants to know is how to get home again. The ruler of Oz, the great Wizard, who resides in an Emerald City, may be the only one powerful enough to help her. But can he? The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has become an established part of multiple cultures, mainly because of the1939 film adaptation has become a classic of popular culture. Spreading from its early young American readership to become known throughout the world, it has been translated or adapted into well over fifty languages, at times being modified in local variations. Unlike the film, the book contains "Oh so much more" detail for children to enjoy. Enough to fire the imagination of any child in any country of the world. NOTE: Written by author L. Frank Baum and illustrated by W. W. Denslow, the book was inspired by a castle-like structure near Baum’s home and Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.

Bitter enemies trapped within a single skin, Sorykah and Soryk are soon drawn into a sinister web of death and deceit.

Book Short Summary:

Choice Outstanding Academic Title of 2016 Rural queer experience is often hidden or ignored, and presumed to be alienating, lacking, and incomplete without connections to a gay culture that exists in an urban elsewhere. Queering the Countryside offers the first comprehensive look at queer desires found in rural America from a genuinely multi-disciplinary perspective. This collection of original essays confronts the assumption that queer desires depend upon urban life for meaning. By considering rural queer life, the contributors challenge readers to explore queer experiences in ways that give greater context and texture to modern practices of identity formation. The book’s focus on understudied rural spaces throws into relief the overemphasis of urban locations and structures in the current political and theoretical work on queer sexualities and genders. Queering the Countryside highlights the need to rethink notions of “the closet” and “coming out” and the characterizations of non-urban sexualities and genders as “isolated” and in need of “outreach.” Contributors focus on a range of topics—some obvious, some delightfully unexpected—from the legacy of Matthew Shepard, to how heterosexuality is reproduced at the 4-H Club, to a look at sexual encounters at a truck stop, to a queer reading of TheWizard of Oz. A journey into an unexplored slice of life in rural America, Queering the Countryside offers a unique perspective on queer experience in the modern United States and Canada.

Book Short Summary:

Listen to its haunting, angelic sound After centuries of life, the Vampire has just two passions left: blood and music. The blood of innocents is plentiful and easily attained—it is his other passion that torments him. Many years ago he owned and lost a violin that sang with the voice of the angels. Now this unearthly monster will do anything to press the instrument once more against his neck. As it summons a hellish creature of the night Maggie O’Hara was a talented if unremarkable violinist—until the day her grandfather gives her a violin he had brought home from World War II. For fifty years the magnificent instrument sat untouched in an attic, but from the moment Maggie hits the first note, her playing is transformed. With this remarkable violin in her possession, all of her dreams are eerily becoming reality. But she has no way of knowing that a nightwalker is tracking her down—and that he has every intention of taking back, through bloodlust and terror, what is rightfully his. . . . THE VAMPIRE’S VIOLIN

Book Short Summary:

Since it was first introduced over a hundred years ago in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, L. Frank Baum's world of Oz has become one of the most enduring and beloved creations in children's literature. It has influenced numerous prominent writers and intellectuals, and become a lasting part of the culture itself. L. Frank Baum was born in 1856 in upstate New York, the seventh child of a very successful barrel-maker and later oil producer. However, Baum's own career path was a rocky one. Beginning as an actor, Baum tried working as a traveling salesman, the editor of a small town newspaper and the publisher of a trade journal on retailing, failing to distinguish himself in any occupation. His careers either failed to provide a sufficient living for his beloved wife Maud and their children or were so exhausting as to be debilitating. In the 1890's, L. Frank Baum took the advice of his mother-in-law, suffragist leader Matilda Gage, and turned his attention to trying to sell the stories he'd been telling to his sons and their friends. After a few children's books published with varying success, he published The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1900 and it quickly became a bestseller and has remained so ever since. In this first full-length adult biography of Baum, Rogers discusses some of the aspects that made his work unique and has likely contributed to Oz's long-lasting appeal, including Baum's early support of feminism and how it was reflected in his characters, his interest in Theosophy and how it took form in his books, and the celebration in his stories of traditional American values. Grounding his imaginative creations, particularly in his fourteen Oz books, in the reality of his day, Katharine M. Rogers explores the fascinating life and influences of America's greatest writer for children.

In this dark, action-packed fourth book in the New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die series, Amy Gumm travels from Oz to the twisted land of Ev, where she fights to free Oz from evil once and for all. My name is Amy Gumm. You might remember me as the other girl from Kansas. When a tornado swept me away to the magical land of Oz, I was given a mission: Dorothy must die. That’s right, everyone’s favorite Wicked-Witch-slayer had let the magic of Oz corrupt her. She turned evil. So I killed her. But just when we thought it was safe to start rebuilding the damaged land of Oz, we were betrayed. Now I’m following the Road of Yellow Brick as it helps me escape toward the mysterious land of Ev, where the Nome King rules a bleak and angry world. And what I’m about to find is shocking: My original mission may not have been successful. I thought my job was over, but it’s only just beginning. And it’s up to me to foil Dorothy’s plans for revenge—and finally save the land I’ve come to love.
