Return to L. Frank Baum’s wonderful world of Oz with this illustrated children’s book series.
When Ojo, everyone’s favorite Munchkin boy, is kidnapped—first by gypsies and then by a roving robber band—he makes an adventurous escape in the company of two new friends: Snufferbux, the singing and dancing bear, and Realbad, the bandit chieftain with the mysterious past.
Then an awesome encounter with the hideous Mooj reveals the unexpected and true identities of both Realbad and Ojo!
Praise for the Oz series
“Where the young stay young and the old grow young forever—these books are for readers of all ages.”—Ray Bradbury
“The land of Oz has managed to fascinate each new generation. . . . The Oz books continue to exert their spell . . . and those who read [them] are often made what they were not—imaginative, tolerant, alert to wonders.”—Gore Vidal
“I was raised with the Oz books, and their enchantment, humor and excitement remain with me. They are still a joy and a treasure. I welcome this Oz revival.”—Stephen R. Donaldson

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ojo in Oz In this book Ojo the Munchkin boy is kidnapped by gypsies. He finds that he has a price on his head -five thousand sacks of sapphires for his capture- but has no idea why. As his friends in the Emerald City set out to search for him, he visits strange places and makes some new friends. I found this book very entertaining, the plot was different from previous Oz books, and the towns with odd people are always interesting. The problem with Oz is that it's characters don't have any problems (that can't be instantly solved by magic). The author has to be very creative in finding ways for them to misplace their magic or have it stolen from them. Otherwise this is a delightful book.
