In The Land of Oz, young Tip runs away from his guardian, the witch Mombi, taking with him Jack Pumpkinhead and the wooden Saw-Horse, and flees to the Emerald City where he learns the incredible secret of his past.
A gentle but exciting journey
I went looking for other books narrated by Anna Fields after I'd wrapped up her excellent reading of "A Beautiful Mind", the John Nash bio by Sylvia Nasar -- so imagine my delight when I stumbled over this classic! Fields does a great job of bringing Baum's playfully warped imagination to life as we are introduced to the Land of Oz, both again and also for the first time. Note: I saved this audiobook to savor over quiet afternoon naps -- it was a pure JOY!
