Horn Book Review

Betsy Bobbin from Oklahoma and her mule, Hank, make their way to the land of Oz in this saga. Shipwrecked in the Rose Kingdom, Betsy becomes caught up in the intricate and ever-changing politics of Oz. As whimsical and humorous as its predecessors, this eighth Oz book will satisfy readers in search of a sojourn there. The illustrations are as rich in color and character as the story.
