Out of Oz by Gregory Maguire

We are all familiar with the story of Dorothy, her dog Toto and her adventures in Oz, but what if that wasn't all of the story? Author Gregory Maguire has taken Frank L. Baum's story and twisted it just a bit. What started in Wicked, and continued in Son of a Witch and a Lion Among Men, is now coming to a conclusion with Out of Oz. Fans of the series will want to pick up the last volume, and new readers will be brought up to speed with a great introduction as well as a time line and important events. Keep your eyes peeled to references to the movie and books, as this Out of Oz is jam packed with action, adventure and a lot of cultural references.
