This book is a facsimile of the interior of the original book. The famous and well-beloved Cowardly Lion is the hero of the sixteenth of the wonderful Oz books -- but there are two new and highly diverting characters -- a red-head boy named Bob Up and a delightful circus clown called Notta Bit More.

Many and varied are the adventures of the Coward Lion, Bob, and Notta, including an astonishing air-voyage in a "Flyaboutabus," to invoke the aid of Princess Ozma and the Wizard of Oz…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
This book is a facsimile of the interior of the original book. The famous and well-beloved Cowardly Lion is the hero of the sixteenth of the wonderful Oz books -- but there are two new and highly diverting characters -- a red-head boy named Bob Up and a delightful circus clown called Notta Bit More. In the Munchkin country all three are captured by the Mudgers, who are just as queer as lots of other Ozites. Many and varied are the adventures of the Coward Lion, Bob, and Notta, including an astonishing air-voyage in a "Flyaboutabus," to invoke the aid of Princess Ozma and the Wizard of Oz against the wiles of the wicked King of the Mudgers. The thrilling experiences that follow could happen only in Oz. How the brave self-sacrifice of the Cowardly Lion saved his friends -- who had set out to rescue him -- makes the most Ozey part of the story. Of course Dorothy and the Scarecrow, the Patch Work girl, the Tin Woodman and all the other dear, familiar Oz folks figure delightfully in this newest Oz book.
Autorenporträt
Ruth Plumly Thompson (1891 - 1976) was an American writer of children's stories, best known for writing many novels placed in Oz, the fictional land of L. Frank Baum's classic children's novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its sequels. An avid reader of Baum's books and a lifelong children's writer, Thompson was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and began her writing career in 1914 when she took a job with the Philadelphia Public Ledger; she wrote a weekly children's column for the newspaper. She had already published her first children's book, The Perhappsy Chaps, and her second, The Princess of Cozytown, was pending publication when William Lee, vice president of Baum's publisher Reilly & Lee, solicited Thompson to continue the Oz series. (Rumors among fans that Thompson was Baum's niece were untrue.) Between 1921 and 1939, she wrote one Oz book a year.
