In this final sequel to the beloved classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, L. Frank Baum spins a wonderful tale of the exciting experiences of Princess Ozma of Oz and Dorothy in their hazardous journey to the home of the Flatheads and to the magic isle of Skeezers, and how they were rescued from dire peril by the sorcery of Glinda the Good.
The wicked Queen Coo-ee-oh, a vain and evil witch, was really to blame for all the trouble. She surely succeeded in getting everyone on the magic, glass-doomed island of the Skeezers into amazing difficulties. The exciting story tells how Glinda and the Wizard worked with all their might to save the Princess and Dorothy from the great dangers which threatened them when they went among the warring tribes of the Flatheads and Skeezers.
This is the last and one of the best tales about the merry old Land of Oz from author L. Frank Baum. Oz fans young and old will delight in this new, inexpensive edition, enhanced by all the wonderful original illustrations by John R. Neill.

L. Frank Baum

Lyman Frank Baum, born May 15 1856, was an American author of children's books, best known for writing The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He wrote thirteen novel sequels, nine other fantasy novels, and a host of other works (55 novels in total, plus four "lost" novels, 83 short stories, over 200 poems, an unknown number of scripts, and many miscellaneous writings), and made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and screen.

His works anticipated such century-later commonplaces as television, augmented reality, laptop computers (The Master Key), wireless telephones (Tik-Tok of Oz), women in high risk, action-heavy occupations (Mary Louise in the Country), and the ubiquity of advertising on clothing (Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work).

On May 5, 1919, Baum suffered from a stroke. He died quietly the next day, nine days short of his 63rd birthday.His final Oz book, Glinda of Oz, was published on July 10, 1920, a year after his death. The Oz series was continued long after his death by other authors, notably Ruth Plumly Thompson, who wrote an additional nineteen Oz books.
