The story starts quietly with Trot and Cap’n Bill rowing along the Pacific shore, when suddenly, a mighty whirlpool engulfs them. The old sailorman and the little girl are miraculously saved and regain consciousness to find themselves in a sea cavern. Then, one perilous adventure crowds in upon another. Cap’n Bill and Trot journey to Oz, and, with the help of the Scarecrow, the former ruler of Oz, overthrow the villainous King Krewl of Jinxland.

This was purportedly Baum’s personal favorite Oz book.

Lyman Frank Baum (May 15, 1856 – May 6, 1919) was an American author chiefly famous for his children’s books, particularly The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its sequels. He wrote 14 novels in the Oz series, plus 41 other novels, as well as many short stories, poems, and plays.

For over a century, readers of all ages have loved these stories, and many of the Oz characters and situations have become a part of popular culture.
