Publisher's Summary

The Marvelous Land of Oz is the second Oz book. In this sequel to the original book, the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman are back with a boy named Tip as well as a host of new characters, including Mr. H. M. Woggle-Bug, Princess Ozma of Oz, Dr. Nikidik, and Old Mombi. When the Scarecrow, now the ruler of the Emerald City, is driven out by General Jinjur and her all-girl army, his friends--the Tin Woodman, a boy named Tip, and Jack Pumpkinhead--try to restore peace. Dorothy isn't in this story, though she is mentioned frequently by her friends.

Holy long intro, Batman!

Any additional comments?

Almost 28 minutes of introduction to a kid's story? My son kept telling me he didn't like this book very much. I pooh poohed him, until I sat to listen - WOW! No wonder he got bored. And what's more annoying, the first chapter and the intro are all mushed up into the first section. Can't skip it! Have to 30sec forward until the end of the {Charlie Brown Peanuts teacher voice}. That was a PITA. For everyone else, the story is great just start about 27:30 to get right into it.

Poorly produced

This audiobook was very frustrating for myself and especially my kids as the first 27 minutes is endless droning about each of the books in the series (complete with spoilers). Unfortunately, chapter 1 of the audiobook includes these 27 minutes followed by about 7 minutes of the first chapter of the actual book - with no marker in between. So, it took a very long time to find the actual start. Also, the narrator, in my opinion, is not very good.
