The Ozmapolitan of Oz (hardcover)

Oz book #44! Written and illustrated by Dick Martin.

The only Oz book written by Martin tells the story of the Ozmapolitan newspaper (originally created as promotional material for the earlier Oz books). When newcomer Tim seeks to increase circulation, he travels into the Winkie Country with Dorothy, Eureka, and a Mifket printer’s devil named Jinx to find new stories and spread the word. Tim’s background is shrouded in mystery, however, and someone appears to be trying to sabotage the mission. After a series of wild encounters, the party finds itself in a series of caverns inhabited by water elementals and prehistoric people and creatures, where they run into the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman! The ending provides a twist, as the Ozian press take center stage.

Dick Martin was the illustrator of Yankee in Oz, The Enchanted Island of Oz, The Forbidden Fountain, and Merry Go Round in Oz.

Originally published in 1986, this 2006 hardcover edition is printed in the size of the original Oz books and includes full color cover dustjacket and numerous B&W illustrations throughout. 202 pages.
