While on an ocean liner bound for Australia, caught in a storm, Dorothy is washed overboard. Clinging to a wooden chicken coop, she drifts to the mysterious shores of Ev, a kingdom that lies across the Deadly Desert from her beloved Oz. In his third book about Oz, certainly one of the finest in the series, L. Frank Baum reunites Dorothy with her friends, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion. Along the way she meets a hen named Bill, a clockwork man, a wicked princess who switches heads to suit her mood, and finally, Ozma, the kind and beautiful new ruler of Oz. John McDonough immerses himself in the story as he reads the 1907 classic, telling the tale with his storytelling flair and a voice as comforting as a grand-father's lap. S.E.S.

Readers of all ages will welcome the chance to be reunited with Dorothy Gale and such beloved characters as the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion, as well as to meet new favorites such as the Hungry Tiger, whose appetite is never satisfied; Princess Langwidere, who has thirty heads; Billina, a talking chicken; and Tiktok, a mechanical man.
Blown overboard while sailing with her uncle, Dorothy finds herself in the fairy realm of Ev. She sets out with her friends to rescue the Queen of Ev and her ten children, who have been imprisoned by the cruel Nome King. But even Ozma, the wise Ruler of Oz, is no match for the clever king, and it's up to Dorothy to save everyone from terrible danger.

"The wind blew hard and joggled the water of the ocean, sending ripples across its surface. Then the wind pushed the edges of the ripples until they became waves, and shoved the waves around until they became billows. The billows rolled dreadfully high: higher even than the tops of houses. Some of them, indeed, rolled as high as the tops of tall trees, and seemed like mountains; and the gulfs between the great billows were like deep valleys."
