The Red Gorilla of Oz is one of many books that are, as its subtitle states, "founded on and continuing the famous Oz stories of L. Frank Baum." It is the first of two Oz books written in 2012 by Richard Capwell, who has also written Santa Claus in Oz. He doesn't claim to be a "Royal Historian of Oz" as Baum did in the later of his 14 books about adventures in Oz, but it is clear that he is, like Ruth Plumly Thompson, Sherwood Smith, and Eric Shanower, writing in the same tradition.

The Red Gorilla of Oz was alright. I was doing research for an Oz book I was writing myself and this was one of my favorite that I read. My expectations were a little on the low side after having read a few newer Oz books that simply should have stayed stuffed away in someone's top drawer, but the Red Gorilla was not cringe-worthy and it was decent and sufficiently Oz-y.
