    " This novel serves as an excellent glimpse into Frank L. Baum's world of Oz! Read this book if you want to be magically swept away and utterly amused. The story has plenty of whimsy and wit without forgetting to include real peril. The Nome King, Roquat the Red, is seeking revenge and threatens to destroy the Emerald City and all of its inhabitants in the process! Dorothy and Princess Ozma must team up along with the rest of the city's residents to defeat the coming onslaught of Nomes, Whimsies, Growleywogs, and Phanfasms! "

    " I'm reading this to my daughter. It's not as good as I remember as a kid, but it is full of puns, which I love. "

    " Mr. Baum was obviously tired of writing books set in Oz at this point, and was trying very hard to find a way to end the series. There are two plotlines running through the book; a planned invasion of Oz and the emigration and acclimation of Dorothy and family to Oz. There's some very cute moments here, and the invasion plot is pretty well done. However, the actual invasion is--a little anti-climatic. Final verdict--it's enjoyable, but Mr. Baum's desire to wind things up and get on with writing other things is very evident throughout. "

    " very strange book!! was Mr. Baum on heavy meds? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Clarissa | 2/4/2014

    " I'm just not even sure what to think. Was this an ending? If so, why were there more books? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 1/14/2014

    " This one has to be one of my favorites in the series. I loved the story and how they came to end the conflict peacefully. What a great story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janie Hepler | 1/8/2014

    " I read these Oz sequels a couple of years ago, and I think they deserve a re-read. "

    " this is a favorite.. the variety of people living in oz is refreshing.. and funny! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 11/30/2013

    " The puns, oh the puns....this book in the series was SO much better than the last one. This one actually had a plot. And I loved the puns. Who knew a kingdom of utensils could be so hilarious? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisha G | 11/19/2013

    " The visit to Utensia was enough to win me over. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bela | 10/18/2013

    " This is a great read in between novels. While I was saturated with drama of other books, this was a really nice light read. Whimsical and enchanting, but then what more could you expect from Oz. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 9/13/2013

    " This is my absolute favorite Oz book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roshni | 8/30/2013

    " Most annoyingly repetitive and lack of new plot from the million other books he wrote "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 8/30/2013

    " I don't clearly recollect the later volumes in this series, but I know I ripped through the entire "Oz" shelf at the library. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina | 8/20/2013

    " I like this one better than the previous few. There are some clever conversations - I particularly like the 'trial' in Utensia. You can tell by the way the author ends this book that he's really trying to get away from Oz! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leo | 8/20/2013

    " This book was alright. Some parts go off the deep end with eye-rolling puns. I like a good pun now and then, but give me a break. Some of the peoples the character meet seem to be there just so Baum can puntificate on the myriad of puns available in utensia and bunville. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew | 6/24/2013

    " Another fun journey through the land of Oz, filled with bizarre characters and fabulous puns. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana Eichhorn | 6/13/2013

    " This was supposed to be the last of the Oz books, and it would have been a very satisfying ending. The fact that it's book 6 of 14 makes me nervous for the rest of the books... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherwood Smith | 5/20/2013

    " I loved these books when thirteen. Now they don't hold up quite as well, yet Baum is so interesting, and what he was trying to do is so interesting, and above all, the Oz community is so interesting, that I maintain my unstinting loyalty. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle Cohen | 5/11/2013

    " My favorite book of the series. "

    " Pretty good. Glad it wasn't the last Oz book. "
