About the Book

The eighth book in L. Frank Baum's Land of Oz series is titled Tik-Tok of Oz. In order to conquer Oz, Queen Ann Soforth of Oogaboo, a tiny kingdom cut off from the rest of Winkie Country in Oz, decides to build an army. Queen Ann and her army march out of Oz after Glinda the Good, the land's guardian, magically rearranges the road across the land. The Shaggy Man plunges through the greenhouse's ceiling and uses his Love Magnet to woo the Gardener into saving everyone's lives. The Shaggy Man, Betsy, Hank, Ozga, and Polychrome battle Queen Ann and her troops.
When they invade the Nome Kingdom, the Shaggy Man, Queen Ann, and the Army of Oogaboo tumble into the Slimy Cave. The group then reaches the realm of the Great Jinjin, an immortal known by the name Tititi-Hoochoo. When Quox breaks the lock on the Nome King's neck, six eggs are released, forcing the Nome King to flee his realm. In the heart of the Forest, the Shaggy Man runs into his brother. The former Nome King cursed the brother with an ugly enchantment.
Ozga, a fairy who was once a maid, tries to break the curse first after Betsy, a mortal maid, fails. The man's brother is finally brought back to life by the fairy Polychrome's kiss.
