From the author of The Wizard of Oz comes a delicious fantasy novel featuring a life-size gingerbread man named John Dough. All John Dough has to do is avoid being eaten by a crowd of gingerbread-loving characters! The tasty fellow journeys to the Isle of Phreex where he meets a charming child of indeterminate gender. Together they escape the island in an incredible flying-machine. But they still have to survive the mischievous Mifkets, a den of hungry Pirates, and many other characters with a passion for gingerbread! Joined by a bouncing rubber bear called Para Bruin they finally reach a marvelous land where they might just find a home! In the style of Baum s famous Wizard of Oz series, John Dough and the Cherub is available again for the first time in many years. This beautiful reprint includes all of John R. Neill s wonderful illustrations and an informative Foreword by J. L. Bell.
