The Marvelous Land of Oz

Marvelous Land Of Oz Cover

The Marvelous Land of Oz commonly shortened to The Land of Oz, published on July 5, 1904, is the second of L. Frank Baum's books set in the Land of Oz, and the sequel to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. It is the only book in the series in which Dorothy Gale does not appear. This and the next 34 Oz books of the famous forty were illustrated by John R. Neill. The book was made into an episode of The Shirley Temple Show in 1960, and into a Canadian animated feature film of the same name in 1987.

General Jinjur's Army of Revolt was a parody of the Suffragette movement, with which Baum was very familiar; his mother-in-law was the famous suffrage activist Matilda Joslyn Gage.
