The Scarecrow of Oz is the ninth Oz book. In this story, Trot, a young girl from California, and her peg-legged sailor friend, Cap'n Bill, find themselves on a perilous voyage when a whirlpool leaves them stranded in an underwater cave. There they are befriended by a most curious creature - the Ork. With four paddle-like wings, legs like a stork's, a parrot's head, and a tail like a propeller, the Ork proves to be a very welcome and helpful companion.

After escaping the cave, the three friends make their way to the magical Land of Mo, where it snows popcorn and rains lemonade. Here they find Button-Bright--lost once again and eager to join in their adventures. Together, the four travel across the deadly desert and into the Land of Oz, only to find themselves in new troubles with the scowling King Krewl and Blinkie, a wicked witch. Just when they need him the most, the Scarecrow comes to their rescue. Thanks to the Scarecrow's wondrous brains, the friends just might have a chance to triumph.

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie | 1/28/2014

    " Trot is my favorite of his heroines. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 George | 1/8/2014

    " 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. "

    " this was one of my favorites so far! "

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fred | 12/30/2013

    " 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 Cunningham-Lozano | 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 Nikoline | 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. "
