While I did like this book slightly better than Neill's Wonder City of Oz, Scalawagons lacked cohesiveness and a worthwhile plot. It was a cobbled together adventure story that lacked a significant villain (the Bellsnickle was a let down), was full of way too many cheesy puns, and again seemed to take strong, already well established characters like Ozma and Glinda and dumb them down. I again was also disappointed with Neill's use of inanimate objects randomly having the abilities to talk, think ...more

Slightly better plot structure than The Wonder City of Oz and that is the best I can say about it. This book is really just boring. I think if you haven't read many previous Oz books you would enjoy John R. Neils contributions a little more.

It lacks the charm, character development and intrigue of the Oz wo ...more

I LOVE this book. It is a childhood favorite, and one of the best of the Oz series. It has made a lasting impression. I will never forget the image of Tik-toc knocking sense into the scalawagons. I'm not sure how easy this book is to actually find. I have never come across a copy of it other than the copy that my mom had when she was a small child.
