Pirates in Oz Cover

Pirates in Oz (1931) is the twenty-fifth of the Oz books created by L. Frank Baum and the eleventh written by Ruth Plumly Thompson.

Peter returns to Oz for a third time, this time with Captain Samuel Salt and his pirates on the Nonestic Ocean (which surrounds the continent Oz is on). Meanwhile, Old Ruggedo, the Gnome King is back.

He had been hit with a Silence Stone at the end of The Gnome King of Oz, and decides to answer an advertisement for king of the Land of Menankypoo, whose people communicate with words that appear on their foreheads, and demand "a dumb king".
