Whether you grew up reading L. Frank Baum's amazing books for children, or you'd like to introduce your own kids to the amazing land of Oz, The Lost Princess of Oz is one of the best books you can consider. This enchanting novel is the eleventh canonical Oz book and reintroduces Dorothy and the Wizard as the main protagonists, in their quest to find the lost Princess Ozma.
Dorothy now lives in the Emerald City, tending to her friends, as one day she arises from bed to be the first to realize that Princess Ozma is missing. Not only that, but Glinda and the Wizard also realize that their magical tools have mysteriously disappeared. In an attempt to act as quickly as possible, the three devise a plan, and set out to find Ozma and the lost tools, with the help of Betsy Bobbin, Button-Bright and Trot. But will they be successful, and what other adventures await them in the days to come?
Baum manages to create a beautiful and colorful story that has captivated the minds of children for several generations, and continues to be smiled upon with amazement by people of all ages today. The story follows a similar path to many of the other Oz books, however, this time Dorothy and her friends have to face the evil Ugu the Shoemaker and the many obstacles he places in their path.
Friendship and compassion endures as in many of the other Baum novels; however, the lessons and plot twists included in the Lost Princess of Oz are quite unique in their ingenuity and elegance.
The Lost Princess of Oz was dedicated by Baum to the daughter of his youngest son, Kenneth Gage Baum. Ozma Baum, however, was definitely not the only happy child who read this beautiful tale of friendship and magic. Many children from around the world simply love this delightful story and continue using it as a doorway to the fantastic land of Oz and the Emerald City even today.
