I'd finally broken through the long dark night of poor Oz books with 'Rinkitink in Oz', the books still fail to work as delights in their own right, but at least Baum feels a little free to actually experiment with his writing again.

'The Lost Princess of Oz' has a good plot to begin with - Ozma is missing, perhaps taken, and with her all of the magical accoutrements in the land! Glinda's record book and instruments as well as the Wizards black bag and Ozma's magic picture have all been stolen in the night. Readers of the whole series will notice one big item missing in that list that is conveniently unknown to the thief. Meanwhile, in a hitherto unmentioned town in the middle of Winkie country Cayke the Cookie Cook is missing her jeweled dishpan and enlists a haughty talking Frog to help her find it.

All of the residents of the royal palace turn out to help search for Ozma, the party containing the most interesting characters bizarrely are the ones who head on the right track to intercept Cayke and find the thief. Of course such a plot cannot be allowed to be solved without some overpowered magical artifact that prevents any cleverness from being displayed.

Despite the usual forced ending, I like 'Lost Princess' better than many of the Oz sequels because without stupid magic the story is allowed to unfold in a natural way and the focus of seeking Ozma puts digressions at a minimum. The size of the party prevents character development. Our travelers come across many other unexplored areas and meet new friends, including a kingdom of teddy bears, but there is more charm than irritation.

There's a very real chance that this is the best book in the entire series: it's adventurous, funny, reflective, strange, and just a tiny bit meta-fictional ahead of its time. If the Oz books had stopped here, it certainly would have been L. Frank Baum's crowning achievement. Regardless, though, it is far and away better than any sequel written by any of his successors, as well as most of his own both before and afterward.

If your kid has never read an Oz book, give them this one. ( )

The Lost Princess of Oz is the 11th of 14 books he wrote about the land of Oz, the penultimate Oz publication prior to his death in 1919. The plot revolves around the disappearance of Ozma, the fairy princess ruler of Oz (introduced several books earlier, it seems that when the Wizard came to Oz the first time, he had hidden Ozma, making himself the ruler of Oz). Also missing is Glinda's great book of records (like a ticker, has up to the minute updates on everything that happens in the land of Oz), the wizard's bag of tricks (the real source of his "powers", Ozma's magic picture (which acts much like the mirror in Disney's Beauty and the Beast) and, missing from another part of Oz altogether, a baking pan made of gold and decorated with diamonds (which not only is the only pan the owner seems to be able to use to make unburnt cookies, but is also magical in its abilities to transport someone, much like the use of a port key in Harry Potter.

Princess Ozma was the ruler of the Fairyland in the Land of Oz. She was the protector and friend of many. Dorothy and some other close friends of Ozma decided to go on a journey to Munchkin country. She went to ask Ozma about using the Sawhorse and the Red Dragon, when she realized that the princess was missing and no one knew where she was. They searched the whole palace and grounds but no one knew where she was. Dorthy went to the Magic Picture which is one of Ozma greatest treasure and it shows where in the world a person is but it was missing also. They soon found out that other things were missing. Glinda the Sorceress of Oz found that her Book of Records and all her magic instruments were gone. Cayke the Cookie Cook discovered that her diamond studded gold dish pan had been stolen. The Black Bag of Magic tools belonging to the Wizard of Oz was also missing. They got together and set out to find Ozma. They arrived at Ugi's castle where they found out that Ozma had been stolen by Ugie who wants to be the most powerful magician in Oz. I like the book because it is mysterious. I also like the challenges and adventures all the characters went through to find the princess and never gave up. ( )
