Comments:
After the opening chapter (taken verbatim from The Emerald City of Oz, Chapter 12), it develops seven intertwined plot threads: Mar the Kangaroo is selling her mittens; the Shaggy Man, in love with Dorothy, wants to return to America to recover Eureka the kitten; Polychrome, in love with the Shaggy Man, wants to get an education so she will be worthy of him; Eureka wants to find a way back to Oz and Dorothy; H.M. Wogglebug T.E. becomes lost in the invisibility surrounding Oz; Almira Gulch (from the MGM film) wants to learn how to be a witch; finally, Ozma tries to keep everything in order. Into this melange sails Sky Island helping to bring about a satisfactory ending.
