Tik-Tok of Oz begins when Ann Soforth, queen of Oogaboo decides to conquer Oz. When she sets out with her army towards the Emerald City, Glinda finds out immeadiately about it in her book of records. She then changes the army's road direction, over the deadly desert over to the Nome King's Dominions.

Meanwhile, a girl named Betsy Bobbin and her mule Hank are shipwrecked on the shores of the Rose Kingdom after their ship sinks. They go to a nearby greenhouse, where a bunch of female roses cast them out.

Then who should come crashing through the roof than the Shaggy Man. He and Betsy pick a rose princess, and proclaim her the new ruler of the Rose Kingdom. However, the roses don't wan't the rose girl, whose name is Ozga, as their ruler, so he to is cast out of the Rose Kingdom. They then travel over a bridge to the Nome Kings Dominions, where they find Tik-Tok crashed in a well.

You will have to read for yourself what happens after that. This is quite possibly the most comical of all the Oz books.

I love these reproductions. Beautifully done. It loos great on my Nook as well as my iPad Nook app. The illustrations are wonderful. Before purchasing one of the Oz books, make sure it is from Eltanin Publishing. They are the very best versions.

Even though the plot is dull, at least it has a plot. I tired of the endless journey through fairy country, meeting new and odd people, especially after having finished ["Road to Oz"] immediately prior. Although one never believes the Nome king and allies pose much of a real threat, that is one of the beauties of a fairy country: no one is never in any real danger. This book also seems much more philosophical than many of the other Oz books as much ado is made about the fact that people in Oz don't have money and everyone just works for the good of everyone else because it pleases them to do so, and those who are tiresome are sent to live in cities made up of other people who are equally tiresome in the same manner. This is a sound philosophy, which, unfortunately only works in fairy countries.

This is one of my favorite Oz books.  When I was growing up, I read all 15 of Frank Baum's Oz books and most of the  ones written by Ruth Plumly Thompson.   I love these books and am so happy you can get them with the illustrations. I
