    In this sequel to the original book, the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman are back with a boy named Tip as well as a host of new characters, including Mr. H. M. Woggle-Bug, Princess Ozma of Oz, Dr. Nikidik, and Old Mombi. When the Scarecrow, now the ruler of the Emerald City, is driven out by General Jinjur and her all-girl army, his friends--the Tin Woodman, a boy named Tip, and Jack Pumpkinhead--try to restore peace. Dorothy isn't in this story, though she is mentioned frequently by her friends.

    Story

    This audiobook was very frustrating for myself and especially my kids as the first 27 minutes is endless droning about each of the books in the series (complete with spoilers). Unfortunately, chapter 1 of the audiobook includes these 27 minutes followed by about 7 minutes of the first chapter of the actual book - with no marker in between. So, it took a very long time to find the actual start. Also, the narrator, in my opinion, is not very good.

    In 1991, acting on a tip from a local fisherman, two scuba divers discovered a sunken German U-boat, complete with its crew of 60 men, not too far off the New Jersey coast. The divers, realizing the momentousness of their discovery, began probing the mystery. Over the next six years, they became expert and well-traveled researchers, taught themselves German, hunted for clues in Germany, and constructed theories corrective of the history books, all in an effort to identify this sunken U-boat and its crew.

    Story

    Amazing story, superbly written, and terrifically performed. My favorite audiobook to date. I'm very glad I decided to listen to the unabridged version as I couldn't get enough of this one.
