The Marvelous Land of Oz

Synopsis

In this first sequel to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the adventures of a young boy named Tip are followed as he escapes the grasp of an old sorceress named Mombi and travels to the Emerald City to start a new life. In the process he creates two new companions, Jack Pumpkinhead and the Sawhorse. They are brought to life using a magical powder that Mombi obtains from a reclusive magician. Tip gets mixed up in a rebellion led by a young woman, Jinjur, who overthrows the Scarecrow as the Ruler of Oz.
Joining with the Tin Woodman, Tip and his friends seek to regain control of the Emerald City, but are not successful and must flee for their lives in a most unusual flying creature created from bits and pieces found in the palace. Eventually they make their way to enlist the support of Glinda the Good. Glinda succeeds in capturing Mombi and erasing her magical powers. However, in quashing the rebellion she restores the throne not to the Scarecrow, but to the rightful heir, a young girl named Ozma. (You will have to read the story to find out who Ozma is and how she suddenly emerges on the Ozian scene. It's quite a morphalous tale.)
