    1 thought on “Kabumpo in Oz”

    1. When the Scarecrow returns to the corn field where Dorothy first found him, he discovers that his old bean pole is magical. Sent tumbling far below the surface of Oz down to the Silver Islands, the Scarecrow discovers that he is supposedly the re-created Emperor Chang Wang Woe of this distant kingdom. But is the Scarecrow ready to give up his life in Oz?I swear I've read this story with a different title.

    2. Kabumpo of Oz is a big improvement over The Royal Book of Oz, Thompson's first. There are a few mistakes (the constant misspellings of "Gillikin" as "Gilliken" and "Nome" as "gnome", for instance), but Thompson does a nice job using Ruggedo the Nome King as the villain and introducing several other excellent characters: Kabumpo the Elegant Elephant, Peg Amy the wooden doll, and Wag the rabbit, whose constant spoonerisms are very amusing.

    3. Light years better than the Royal Book of Oz, Thompson has started to get the feel for Baum's incredible world. The new characters are diverse and interesting, and the overall story was good. It still does not have the elegant pace of the original Oz books, but it gives me a lot of hope for the rest of her works.

    4. 3.5 stars. A huge improvement over The Royal Book of Oz, Kabumpo in Oz brings us a cast of lovable new characters and marks the return of the greatest villain of the Oz universe. Prince Pompa of Pumperdink has to find a princess to marry in order to keep his little corner of Oz from disappearing, so he sets out to the Emerald City to propose to Princess Ozma with his friend Kabumpo the Elegant Elephant. Meanwhile, things are not well in the Emerald City. Crafty old Ruggedo, former Gnome King, ha [...]

    5. Talk about your giant step up from the Royal Book! Even if the Royal Book weren't full of racism, this one would be better. I love Kabumpo in Oz.I love Peg Amy the most. Also, I love Kabumpo, and I like Pompa, especially bald!Pompa, and I like the hilarious runaway plot of land. Ruggedo is back and at his best (slash worst). Wag is great too. I do not object to the romance, even though Baum rarely included romantic plots. I like that Scraps has a bit that is more than just the standard character [...]

    6. This is the first Oz book claimed to have been written by Thompson (though I suspect the previous one was too, despite Baum's name on it). It's only okay. There are some interesting parts - the runaway country, for example, and the candle people. But a lot of it reminds me of what the Disney Channel does with Winnie the Pooh - if you throw in enough "Hoo boohoo hoo!" lines from Tigger, it sound like the story without having to have any substance. In this instance, it seems that characters are ju [...]

    7. This was an interesting read but it definitely ended up losing a bunch of its goodness in my opinion due to it being an Oz book. Instead this definitely could have been a fairytale re-telling for towards the end it reminded me a lot about "Beauty and the Beast" although with a twist. The characters following Ms. Ruth's writing have a bit more personality than the regular Oz books while being more human. And yet within this writing you see the same repetitive formula and character building as wit [...]

    8. Not bad. This was Ruth Plumly Thompson's second Oz book after the death of creator L. Frank Baum, and the first under her own name. A birthday party disaster in the kingdom of Pumperdink sends the prince on a quest to find -- and Marry -- Princess Ozma. At the same time, Ruggedo the Nome King is planning his latest assault of the people of Oz. Like most of the books, this story introduces several new characters to the Oz lore, and some of them are fairly charming (although Peg Amy kind of loses [...]

    9. An improvement over Thompson's first Oz book because this one did not have any overt racism. However, it was a bit manic, with lots of weird characters introduced, then dropped, kind of like Baum's earlier Oz stories, in which these characters were introduced seemingly just for the puns, but without really moving the plot forward. I expect that as the Thompson contributions continued, she found her groove.

    10. This was a bit of an improvement on the last Oz book, and it feels like Thompson is getting to grips with Baum writing style (and not making as many terrible puns). This is quite similar to The Marvellous Land Of Oz with its plot about secret identities and brings back some favourite characters while introducing some new ones too.

    11. A decent Oz book. Recommended if you want to read everything published on the country of Oz. It is also an enjoyable read on its own, although it does assume that you are familiar with the ever growing cast of characters that have been added after the first book, so you'll want to have some of the other Oz books read first.

    12. OK, I just spent half an hour writing a review to this book, and the stupid site erased it. I'm not doing it again. Suffice to say, an entertaining story, some good new characters, a few issues with charater and plot development, writing style not quite so charming but easier to read aloud. Whatever.

    13. One of Thompson's better Oz books, I've so far read about half of her books. This is her second book following the pretty terrible Royal book of Oz, she's developing her own style and characters here and moving away from trying unsuccessfully to copy Baum.

    14. Enjoyed reading this for my grandchildren. Stays true to the Oz world. The main characters are new but we do meet important characters from the Oz books. Adults will find this enjoyable but predictable. Kids will enjoy it.

    15. Much better than the first Oz book Thompson wrote. She added more intriguing and fun characters to this wonderful world. I'm glad I get the chance to rediscover one of my favorite series again for the first time (since I never read Thompson's books!)

    16. Not up to par with the charm of an actual Baum Oz talebut worlds better than the Royal Book of Oz, the only other book I've read by Plumly Thompson. That one was the worst.
