Come along on a magical journey to Oz with a whole new group of intrepid adventurers.Trot, a young girl from California, and her peg-legged sailor friend, Cap'n Bill, find themselves on a perilous and exciting voyage when a whirlpool leaves them stranded in an underwater cave. There they are befriended by a most curious creature--the Ork. With four paddle-like wings, legs like a stork's, a parrot's head, and a tail like a propeller, the Ork proves to be a very welcome and helpful companion.After escaping the cave, the three friends make their way to the magical Land of Mo, where it snows popcorn and rains lemonade. Here they find Button-Bright--lost once again and eager to join in their adventures.Together, the four travel across the deadly desert and into the Land of Oz, only to find themselves in new troubles with the scowling King Krewl and Blinkie, a wicked witch. But when everything seems its worst, who should come to their rescue but the Scarecrow of Oz himself! Thanks to the Scarecrow's wondrous brains, our friends just might have a chance to prevail against their heartless enermes.With twelve glowing color plates and over one hundred black-and-white drawings by Oz artist John R. Neill, this beautiful reproduction of the rare 1915 first edition is sure to be a welcome addition to every family's library.Afterword by Peter Glassman. Join young Trot and her peg-legged sailor friend, Cap'n Bill, as they are swept off the high seas and into enchanted realms of excitement and adventure. When Cap'n Bill is transformed into a grasshopper by the wicked witch Blinkie, it's up to Scarecrow to save the day. A Books of Wonder Classic.

3.0 The Scarecrow of Oz
Cap'n Bill and Trot are the characters from the other author series. Their appearance here makes this installment a crossover. Crossover or not, the overall plot is very similar to that of the previous book. These two people were sucked in a giant whirlpool and ended up in an unknown place. They had...

2.0 The Scarecrow of Oz
Life is hard when you're a writer chock-full of creative ideas but the whiny jerks whose parents buy your books only want more of the same. Scarecrow of Oz starts off with a jolt with main characters Trot and Cap'n Bill just existing with barely a sketch of an introduction - Betsy Bobbin at least ga...

This 9th book incorporates characters from Baum's non-Oz books (yes, he wrote non-Oz books!). A little girl named Trot and her friend Cap'n Bill are drawn into some Oz adventures.
