King Rinkitink

ByL. Frank BaumAndrew J. Heller

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Rinkitink in Oz is considered by many to be one of L. Frank Baum’s best books, yet Baum did not intend for it to be an Oz book at all. Written as King Rinkitink in 1905, when it saw print in 1916, it was with significant changes. Although the original manuscript is lost, the International Wizard of Oz Club has brought King Rinkitink back to life with a new ending in Baum's style and sensibility. When sea-raiders invade the peaceful island of Pingaree and carry off its inhabitants to slavery, only young Prince Inga, jolly King Rinkitink, and his grumpy goat Bilbil are left behind. Aided by three Magic Pearls, these unlikely heroes set out to rescue Inga’s people from captivity, a quest that takes them across the ocean and into the dangerous underground world of the Nome King! One of Baum’s best stories just got better with five new chapters, numerous b&w illustrations by John R. Neill and Javi Laparra, and color plates reproduced here in b&w.
