"The Marvelous Land of Oz" is the second book in L. Frank Baum's Oz series,
published in 1904. The story follows an orphan boy named Tip, who lives under
the cruel rule of the Wicked Witch Mombi. Tip creates a scarecrow-like figure
named Jack Pumpkinhead, but Mombi sees through the trick and plans to turn Tip
into a marble statue. To escape, Tip runs away with Jack and steals the Powder
of Life, which brings a wooden Sawhorse to life. They encounter General
Jinjur's all-girl Army of Revolt and join forces with the Scarecrow and the
Tin Woodman to retake the Emerald City. Along the way, they face challenges
from Mombi and are aided by the Queen of the Field Mice. They eventually
discover that Tip is actually the long-lost princess Ozma, who becomes the
rightful ruler of Oz. The book explores themes of women's rights and was
influenced by activist Matilda Joslyn Gage. "The Marvelous Land of Oz" has
been adapted for the stage, film, television, and comics.
