I read this after seeing Wicked about a week before, just to see how different it was from the movie. It was definitely very different from the Judy Garland movie and I love that movie, so this felt like a much lighter version of that. I definitely like the smarts of the group and they way that they work together to solve problems, I can see this as a nice little children's book and I'm surprised I never read this before.

I would have liked it better if there had been more detail written about some of the lands and creatures - I especially found the land of people made out of china interesting. Seems like a lot of description went into that chapter and yet is was completely superfluous to the story. Very strange.
