I think I was 12. My mom made me an Ozma costume, crown, wand, and everything. One of my favorite Halloweens. 🧡

#SeriesRead2022 @TheSpineView

My whimsical journey through Oz continues with this delightful third book. The true heir to the Emerald throne, Ozma, encounters Dorothy, and the two must figure out a way to rescue a royal family imprisoned by a King who enjoys playing games.

Another fun read with vibrant characters and childlike mischief.

ozma.of.oz This one is one of my favorites! 💚 4mo

#7books7days. Day 4
When I was growing up, my grandmother had my aunt‘s collection of Oz books illustrated by John R. Neil. Since DEVOURING those books as a kid, I have been looking for those editions (with limited success).

There‘s a lot more to the land of Oz than the yellow brick road and the Emerald City! This was largely new to me as I prepared for this week‘s episode of my podcast, but I‘m SO glad my guest — bookstagram‘s Heather Boaz — clued me in, because this one was a lot of fun! Ozma of Oz is the third book in L. Frank Baum‘s beloved Oz series and it‘s chock full of strong female protagonists and progressive ideas. Link to listen in bio!

My first books were all Little Golden Books(The Poky Little Puppy, Scuffy The Tugboat, The Saggy Baggy Elephant etc) but the books that were my first true obsession were the Oz books by L. Frank.Baum. I think I borrowed each one from the local library at least five times, my favourites were Ozma Of Oz & Tik-Tok Of Oz. All of them are books I recommend for any little bookworm in your life. #followtheyellowbrickroad #memberofthelollipopguild🍭

Didn‘t like this story. It was kind of pointless and annoying. I think my biggest issue with it was the narrator. He was AWFUL! The voices he used ground on my nerves.
I‘m taking a break from the Oz stories for a bit I think I‘ve over done it.

WhatThePuck I have this requested at the library! I plan to read it to the little, so hopefully he likes it if I don't. 😂 3y

This is the 3rd book of the Oz series. Dorothy had returned in this one. I found it a quirky, fun, listen. While listening to this on audio, I realized I was having some serious flashback. Then I remembered the 80's movie Return to Oz, which turns out to be a bit of a mashup of the 2nd book and this one. The bit that brought me back was the scene with the nome king. Now onto the next in the #seriesread @TheSpineView

This series of the Oz stories is the books I search for every time I see used books.
Also, the Jasper FForde books are terrifically fun fantasy.

The books in this series are really up and down. Ozma isn't the worst that I've read but definitely not a favorite. The Hungry Tiger however is probably my favorite character.

5 ⭐️ Definitely my favorite book out of the Oz series so far! Much more fast paced than the others, but still a wonderful story.

Out of the series, this is the one I remember most of when I read it back when I was 7 years old- if I remember correctly, I think it was because I really wanted to be like Ozma ( Dorothy annoyed me then). Excited to reread it 😊 #FlannelAndGreenTea #FlannelFriday

[DELETED] 4184155464 Ozma is one of my fave characters. Happy reading! 6y
GlitteryOtters Same, same, same! Although I think I was 8 when I first read it. Loved Ozma so much that, 15 years ago, we named our emerald green sedan after her. 💚 6y

TamarackTrail I went on a mission of reading all the OZ books a few years ago. It certainly felt like a mountain! But Ozma was my favourite! 6y
tpixie Love the drawing ! @TamarackTrail that is my goal too. I'm trying to decide if I should wait for grandchildren to do it with or just do it myself! 6y
TamarackTrail Just read them yourself. Some of the books get a little weird, so I'm not sure how long they can keep the attention of little ones. 6y

A fine collection of knick-knacks, but are any of them hiding friends? Hmm. Perhaps listening to Ozma of Oz (available on Audible) will help me figure it out. #audiobook #wizardofoz #daringgirls

kirylin I have a post on my blog about the challenges of working on this audiobook while having flashbacks of that movie: https://rebeccathomas.wordpress.com/2016/03/11/confronting-the-story-that-scared...

Today's #booktober selection: #characteriddressupas...Ozma, of course! Total Queen (literally and figuratively) with beautiful, yet comfortable looking clothes.

rubyslippersreads Wonderful choice! 6y
GlitteryOtters @rubyslippersreads you would appreciate this...my husband & I share a house with my best friend, and Ozma is SO beloved at my house that, when my best friend got the first car she was able to choose (ie, not hand-me-down from parents), she chose an emerald green sedan & when she was trying to figure out a name for the car, we both looked at each other & said "Ozma!" and that is how our household ended up with a car named Ozma for half a decade. ? 6y

RealLifeReading Coincidentally some friends came over to our house yesterday for lunch and a 9yo brought this book w her. She usually is the odd kid out as the rest of the kids are much younger 5 and below and all boys so she comes prepared w a book. 6y
GlitteryOtters @RealLifeReading ahh, that sounds like me at her age! I used to visit my mom in the summers & I was the only kid, so I'd hit her library HARD & spend most of the adult socializing time with Noel Streatfeild or Oz books 😂😂 6y
