By far the best Thompson book so far. The plot wasn't just the standard walking around Oz and meeting new people line we've now read so many times. You couldn't predict how Dorthy was going to solve this conflict right off the bat, so it made you interested in reading to figure out how everything was going to work out. There was good character development for new characters as well as older characters getting developed more.

Nowhere close to the charm, magic, and inventiveness of the originals. These books should not be considered Oz canon. With this book, Thompson has written more Oz books than Baum, but I wish she'd stopped after two or three.
