There are several adventures besides the one that we know of. This book is definitely a gem. I would suggest this book to anyone who likes the original Wizard of Oz, and also anyone who likes a really good story.

Ashley Clinton More than 1 year ago This is a great book for young readers. I would absolutely reccomend it to any age if you are looking for a book that you can't put down! DrGray More than 1 year ago Don't get me wrong - the stories are wonderful. I only knew the story of the Wizard of Oz and wanted to read all the other stories of Oz. However, I purchased the Nook version of this collection and was very disappointed to discover many misspellings, incorrect or nonexistent punctuation, and sentences cut off in the middle or left out completely.
I will make sure I pay close attention to any further Nook purchases to ensure that I don't buy anything else published by MobileReference. DianeFromUtah More than 1 year ago Loved it!

Anonymous More than 1 year ago All the Oz novels for just 95 cents, thats awesome, what great novels! After reading a few of them the general theme gets pretty predictable Dorothy gets lost, has lots of adventures, ends up in Oz , but they're still really well written and engaging reads.
