📚 The Highway To Oz (1909) by L. Frank Baum. E book #5 Of The Fantastic Wizard of OzCollection #ClassicCollection #ChildrensBook #Ozathon24 #TuesdayBookBlog

I’m becoming a member of in with a 12 months lengthy readathon hosted by Lory at Getting into The Enchanted Fort weblog (learn her overview and ideas round e book #1 of the gathering right here.) And CurlyGeek04 from The E book Cease weblog.

The readathon is gradual paced, working between December 2023 and January 2025 taking in all 14 books of the sequence. Anybody can participate and there’s no stress to learn the books so as. I purchased a replica of the gathering for kindle at simply 49 pence from Amazon.co.uk.

The Highway To Ozis e book #5 within the traditional kids’s assortment and it was written in 1909.

This story opens with Dorothy again on the farm in Kansas. She presents to indicate a misplaced stranger (who she calls The Shaggy Man) his method, and finally ends up strolling with him for some time till they each turn into misplaced at an amazing crossroads.

On their stroll they decide up a misplaced boy referred to as Button-Vivid and a misplaced rainbow dancer referred to as Polychrome. As with all these tales, the adventurers will meet others; some good, some unhealthy. Their street finally results in Oz,  the place it’s time to rejoice Princess Ozma’s birthday.

I wasn’t a fan of The Shaggy Man, a stranger who enticed a younger woman away from the protection of her dwelling together with his claims of a particular love magnet. It felt creepy and harmful by immediately’s requirements. Button-Vivid was additionally fairly odd, largely saying ‘I don’t know’ to every thing.

Not my favorite of the tales up to now; it took some time to learn and dragged in the direction of the top.
