Synopsis:

Return to the magical land of Oz in L. Frank Baum’s classic The Marvelous Land of Oz. When Tip tries to scare his guardian, Mombi the witch, with Jack Pumpkinhead (a man Tip made out of wood and a pumpkin head) he unknowingly sets in motion the most amazing adventure of his young life. Along with his creation, Jack Pumpkinhead, the Saw-Horse, the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman, Tip travels to the Emerald City, defeats General Jinjur’s rebellion and finds the missing Princess Ozma.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its thirteen sequels have enchanted audiences since their publication in the early twentieth century. The Marvelous Land of Oz is the second novel in the Oz series and has been adapted into an episode of The Shirley Temple Show, an animated film, and a comic book series by Marvel Comics.
