Poor Dorothy is so very unlucky when it comes to nature’s big events - a tornado, a storm at sea and now an earthquake, all of which see her ultimately end up back in Oz. This time, she goes via some very odd lands, and meets plenty of new friends along the way.
I liked the book, but I don’t think it’s as strong as some of the others in the series so far. A particular highlight was when the two horses met and faced off, real horse versus saw horse. It was nice to have the wizard back again, considering he was the main aim in the first book and disappeared for the next few. Overall, a steady if not spectacular entry in the Oz series.
