4.0 out of 5 stars A New & Enchanted Look at the First Book of the OZ Series and It's Author Sept. 5 2013
By pumpkinwitch - Published on

Did you ever wonder where L. Frank Baum, author of the Oz Series ever got and developed the original idea for the first book? He certainly expanded it from there, but the first his staging area and his launch point. Spike Brown took the first story, and took it backward, and was able to offer an intensely interesting and believable 'take' on how Mr. Baum got involved in the story, and was able to continue the stream of enchanting sequels to the first book.

All the initial characters are there, and the book is well enough written so it's like meeting old friends. This is one of those really great books for the whole family to read together. Everyone from child to adult will enjoy it. If you have been collecting the Oz series, you will want to add this book to your collection. It is a valuable and worthy addition to any Oz collection. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys this series, and this type of book.

Decent idea, though it's execution needed work and the small print made reading difficult.
