Description

Rinkitink in Oz is considered by many to be one of L. Frank Baum’s best books, yet Baum did not intend for it to be an Oz book at all. Written as King Rinkitink in 1905, when it finally saw print in 1916, it was with significant changes to the ending. Although the original manuscript is lost, the International Wizard of Oz Club ran a contest to bring King Rinkitink back to life with a new ending in Baum’s style and sensibility! This is the winning entry!

When sea-raiders invade the peaceful island of Pingaree and carry off its inhabitants to slavery, only young Prince Inga, jolly King Rinkitink, and his grumpy goat Bilbil are left behind. Aided by three Magic Pearls, these unlikely heroes set out to rescue Inga’s people from captivity, a quest that takes them across the ocean and into the dangerous underground world of the Nome King!
