The Land of Oz

By L. Frank Baum

About This Book

... "In the Country of the Gillikins, which is at the North of the Land of Oz, lived a youth called Tip. There was more to his name than that, for old Mombi often declared that his whole name was Tippetarius; but no one was expected to say such a long word when "Tip" would do just as well.
      "This boy remembered nothing of his parents, for he had been brought when quite young to be reared by the old woman known as Mombi, whose reputation, I am sorry to say, was none of the best. For the Gillikin people had reason to suspect her of indulging in magical arts, and therefore hesitated to associate with her ...."

This is the story of the orphan boy, Tip, who builds a wooden man with a pumpkin head . . . who magically comes alive. Tip and Jack Pumpkinhead travel to the Emerald City to meet the ruler of the country. They are pursued by Mombi the witch, waylaid by the girl-army of General JinJur, and by the time they reach the end of their journey, stranger things have happened to Tip than he could ever have believed!

About L. Frank Baum

So now — here they are: Ozma and Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, The Patchwork Girl, Jack Pumpkinhead, and all the other marvelous creatures that inhabit the lands of Oz!
