Wizard of Oz writer L. Frank Baum wrote 13 other Oz stories. In each installment of the series these famous characters undertake new bizarre and magical journeys. New friends and frenemies are also introduced. The Lost Princess of Oz actually begins with an exodus from Oz. Dorothy and two gal pals head off to recover Oz’s girl ruler, Princess Ozma, who has disappeared along with key Oz treasures. Narrator Caitlin Davies has a high, feminine, bell-clear voice. The story is detail rich, plot-heavy, and fantastic, but Davies’ crystalline voice helps the listener steer along without confusion. Davies acts out the dialogue, so the endearing personalities of the characters shine through the wonder and the action.
