Here’s another blue book down, this one coming from L. Frank Baum. For the record, I love the Oz series. The Magic of Oz, however… not my favourite. It was okay, but I grew weary. Here goes.
The Oz-ian citizens are preparing the celebration of Princess Ozma’s birthday, and everyone is scrambling to get something for her that she does not already have. Meanwhile, in another part of Oz a boy named Kiki Aru has learned a magic word that gives him the power to hold sway over Oz and has hooked up with the evil ex-Nome King, Ruggedo, who is bent on revenge. All is unwell, will Oz survive?
Oz survives, for the record, into several more books and stories. Like I said this one is okay. Not a stand out in this series, but fun. It’s a bit too… froofy of a premise for my tastes; more cupcakes and sunshine than I am wont to enjoy.
4 out of 5 stars. What next? I was going to read the fourteenth Oz book today (they are short), but now I am vacillating on it for right now. I think the fact that I acquired an advanced copy of Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer. Yeah, completely seduced by it away from my blue books goal. *whinge* Well, this is why I kept the goal open, afterwards.
