It was great to be back to reading the Oz series with Avery. The cast of characters this time is fresh with Betsy Bobbin, Hank the Mule, Ozga and the Oogaboo entourage. Even more, we have our favourites Shaggy Man and Tik-Tok returning to round out the group. Ruggedo as the nemesis of the book always makes for good times.
How it started and where the story while it flowed was surprising to the both of us. The flow was great, that it was, and the pace held our attention without fail.
Finally the reason that has been burning in our minds for 8 or so books now is answered! Why Toto does not talk! That alone is worth the read! Oh and don't forget to catch one of the earliest uses of a wireless phone I've ever read in a book. Cool stuff!
Again, I must iterate, this series is awesome. There is so much in here and so much that you can see many genres have borrowed from.
