Synopsis:

Princess Ozma of Oz has decreed that no one in Oz can practice magic except for Glinda the Good Witch and the Wizard of Oz. But Kiki Aru, a Hyup Munchkin, has discovered the magic word "Pyrzqxgl" and, alongside his evil accomplice Ruggedo, plans to use the magic to wreak his revenge on the people of Oz. When Dorothy and the Wizard try to stop the wicked pair they are transformed into animals and soon Kiki and Ruggedo are transforming Ozians left and right, causing chaos in Oz’s outlying lands. But the Wizard has heard Kiki pronounce the magic word . . . can he return everyone to their rightful selves and restore order to the marvelous Land of Oz?

The Magic of Oz is the thirteenth book in the Oz series. It was published one month after L. Frank Baum’s death in 1919, and is dedicated to the children of the soldiers of the First World War.

The wonderful legacy of L. Frank Baum’s world lives on today in the work of authors like Gregory Maguire and Robert A. Heinlein, and in Oz the Great and Powerful, the film starring James Franco, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, and Mila Kunis.
