Scarecrow of Oz ( c.1915)

Don't be fooled by the title. This isn't really a story about the Scarecrow; it is a tale that combines the adventures of new visitors to Oz who get mixed up in a royal love story. The newcomers to Oz are Trot and Cap't Bill. First introduced by Baum in The Sea Fairies and Sky Island, their first trip to Oz is by way of a whirlpool that deposits them in a cavern deep under the sea, and a strange flying creature called the Ork, that carries them to Jinxland, one of the remote outer regions of Oz. Along the way they have several amusing adventures and are joined by Button-Bright, a little boy from Philadelphia whose most predictable trait is to get lost. In Jinxland they engage in a dangerous and deadly encounter with a powerful witch who is aiding the king in his cruel plan to marry his daughter to someone she does not love. The daughter (Princess Gloria) is really in love with the gardener's boy, Pon. Learning of the desperate situation in Jinxland, Glinda the Good dispatches the Scarecrow on a rescue mission. But the Scarecrow is no match for the powerful witch and finds himself in his ultimate nightmare, being burned at the stake. How does the Scarecrow get out of this fix? And does Pon win Gloria's hand? What fate befalls the cruel king and evil witch? And does Button-Bright make it home to Philadelphia? These are surprises best left for the reader to discover. You're sure to enjoy this magical tale of adventure and love in the Land of Oz.
