I am back after reading the second book in the Oz series. The author decided to forget about Dorothy for a while and give the Tin Man a name and pretend that he had a name the entire time. His name’s Nick Chopper, but the way. This time, we follow a boy named Tip as he runs away from the witch who’s been raising him all his life for a chance of adventure followed by a walking, talking Jack-o-Lantern and a horse made from wood. It’s Oz, so are we expecting anything else. A man accidentally cutting all his limbs off didn’t get us to question anything.
In this book, the craziness continues with more fun, lovable characters being some we’ve met before, with just a dash of sexism. The world is saved when the women go back to the kitchen because the men find the work way too hard and are not good at it. I wish I was kidding. Considering the ending, it’s bizarre and out of place, but we will have to leave it at that, so I don’t spoil it for you.
I will be back with the next book, eventually… I just need to get rid of the image of a talking bug who won’t stop with the puns.
