The Road to Oz is the fifth Oz book. In this book, Dorothy and Toto are off again on an exciting adventure down the road to Oz. In order to help the Shaggy Man, Dorothy and Toto must journey through magical and mysterious lands. Soon the three are joined by a lost boy named Button-Bright and the beautiful young Polychrome, the Rainbow's Daughter. With magic at work and danger about, these new friends must journey through cities of talking beasts, across the Deadly Desert into the Truth Pond, and through many other strange and incredible places before they can reach the Emerald City.
Along the way, Dorothy and her companions encounter a whole new assortment of fantastic and funny characters - the crafty King Dox of Foxville, the magical donkey King Kik-a-bray, the terrible bigheaded Scoodlers, and Johnny Dooit (who can do anything) - along with old friends Jack Pumpkinhead, Tik-tok, Billina, the Tin Woodman, the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow, and the wonderful Wizard himself.
I love the whole Oz collection but man does the narrator suck. It was dragged out and boring.

This was a great story and such a wonderful narrator. So a good story I want more oz books L.Frank Baum
Another fantastic story in the Oz series! Listening to them all with my 6 and 8 year-olds. Makes commuting to after school activities much more pleasant!
