The Tin Woodman of Oz

Our rating: ****

Woot the Wanderer arrives at the Tin Woodman’s tin castle in Oz. After dinner, the Tin Man, or Nick Chopper, tells Woot about how he became a tin man, and how he was once in love with a Munchkin girl named Nimmie Amee. Woot asks why Nick hasn’t gone to find her after all his adventures with Dorothy were over. So begins another Oz book, in which the Tin Man, Woot and the Scarecrow go to find Nimmie Amee and make her the Empress of the Winkies. You will encounter the Loons and the evil Yookoohoo, Mrs. Yoop.

This is a very funny one. Starting with the deliberate disobedience of the sign to beware the Loons, the whole book is filled with silly adventures that would only happen in Oz.
