Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.5 stars; 31 reviews)

Dear children: Do you like Elephants? Do you believe in Giants? And do you love all the jolly people of the Wonderful Land of Oz? Well then you'll want to hear about the latest happenings in that delightful Kingdom. All are set forth in true Oz fashion in "Kabumpo in Oz," the sixteenth Oz book. Kabumpo is an Elegant Elephant. He is very old and wise, and has a kindly heart, as have all the Oz folks. In the new book you'll meet Prince Pompa, and Peg Amy, a charming Wooden Doll. There are new countries, strange adventures and the most surprising Box of Magic you have ever heard of. Ruggedo , the wicked old Gnome King, does a lot of mischief with this before Princess Ozma can stop him. Of course Dorothy, the Scarecrow, Scraps, Glinda the Good, Tik-Tok, and other old friends all are alive and busy in the new book. I am just back from the Emerald City with the best of Oz wishes for everybody, but especially you. Philadelphia Spring of 1922 Ruth Plumly Thompson (Summary by Ruth Plumly Thompson) (5 hr 10 min)

She wrote a lot. Just not a lot of them were read by Librivox


(5 stars)

Amazing reader and the maintenance supervisor, but it looks like I might not have been charged for the classic t? I don't mind pushing school back once in awhile if that's what works for you. I think we are going to do 4 day party format I tried to make me check, abd I'm going home today I ever had the same process of your having trouble getting to see her

True Oz Book

(5 stars)

This one is even better than her first Oz book. It really makes me wish she had written more. The story is a classic fairytale with twists, adventure, side plots and even a little romance.

(5 stars)

I like the classic fantasy of a prince who saves a princess but is still an oz book.

like it
