You can absolutely tell that this book wasn’t meant to be a part of the Oz series, set in a completely separate land with a slightly more aggressive set of characters. And yet, it fits entirely, due to the similar writing, the similar magic, and the similar whimsical, imaginative nature of the setting and story.

I loved the idea of the three pearls, giving advice or protecting whoever held them - particularly when they got lost or were stuck inside a shoe for whoever put on that footwear. The King and Queen living in separate castles was also something that appealed to me, together but also independent at the same time.

A good entry in the series, but an odd one that stands alone and was clearly shoe-horned in for the sake of the young fans.
