Cap’n Bill, a little girl named Trot, and Button-Bright are marooned in Jinxland, a mountainous region adjacent to Oz but separated by a bottomless chasm. While there, they get embroiled in a political rivalry between good King Kynd and the notorious usurper Krewl. When the Scarecrow gets wind of the trouble via Glinda’s Great Book of Records (a kind of precursor to the internet), he joins the fight between good and evil. The ninth in the Oz books series, it was adapted from the 1914 silent film His Majesty, the Scarecrow of Oz. Download and start listening now!

    " This is the second book in a row where the titular character has a fairly minor role, and I still want to punch Button Bright in the face, but the main story in this one was charming. "

    " Trot is my favorite of his heroines. "

    " This was the second read through. This time I read it to Mike and he was thrilled as usual. He loved that Button Bright was in it again and loved that Trot and Capt'n Bill were finally getting to Oz. He really loved the Land of Mo where it snowed popcorn. He talked about that part for days. "

    " Scarecrow to the rescue. You follow the adventures of capt'n bill, trot and button bright. Learn of new area in oz another fun read. "

    " badder bad guys than usual. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 12/10/2013

    " I must have blown through this series. I remember very little of the later books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christina | 12/6/2013

    " Cute enough. I like the new characters. The story is a good one. I did feel that the author 'forces' the other characters (Dorothy, Ozma, etc.) into the books where they don't quite fit. However, I think he adds them because of the high demand of his readers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/4/2013

    " I had nooooo idea there were so many other characters in the land of oz. I enjoyed this book and fell in love with the sting willed girl, Trot. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anne | 12/3/2013

    " This novel has so much great potential, however, it takes forever to really get started. more to come! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shani | 10/8/2013

    " What can I say here -- meh? It was alright, but I'll probably never read it again. Why does Baum need 3 different characters with indistinguishable characteristics brought to Oz? Oh, right, personal bankruptcy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hpboy13 | 9/4/2013

    " One of the best Oz books, and probably the most heavy on the romance! It's refreshing to have some evil witches causing mischief again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ryan | 1/16/2013

    " Innocent, delightful girl gets lost with male-identified figure (this time man as opposed to mule or small dog), has numerous adventures, thwarts bad guys (although not so impressively as Dorothy) and is allowed residence in Oz. As the title indicates, the Scarcrow gets involved. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ken | 3/12/2012

    " Deligtful book in the Oz series. A quick read that will take you to a place you have never been to in a heartbeat. Wonderful characters and story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/22/2012

    " Read the whole Oz series (all 14 books). Some were better than others. Lots of strong, smart, tough (some downright pigheaded) girls. Equal number of bumbling, clumsy, yet lovable male characters. Great way to wile away the hours as they say. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 4/7/2011

    " While still reading as an Oz book, and still containing the child like wonder that the previous books in this series show, somehow this one also had a more mature feel. I don't kow how to explain it, but it felt more grown up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 2/26/2010

    " My Mom gives me another collectible hardcover Oz book for my birthday every year. This is a cute one, but they're all blurring together. Same mixture of whimsy and fancy... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Adam | 11/6/2009

    " I remember a crippling lack of anything interesting...flying monkeys especially. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ines | 10/20/2009

    " A marvellous books that takes us to the innocent mind of a child and her sensible new friends, each one with a purpose to embrace Dorothy's journey.
    Written in a simple way but with the right words that warm our heart. "
