When Amy Gumm is swept away from her tiny Kansas town to Oz, she's
thrilled to escape the drudgery of life at home. But the Oz she lands in
differs significantly from the movies and the books. As Amy makes her
way down the famous yellow brick road, she learns that the heroes of the
book have become twisted versions of themselves: the Scarecrow performs
terrible operations, sewing magical creatures together; the Tin Man now
runs the Emerald City's secret service, terrorizing all who come across
his path; and the Cowardly Lion is now a vicious animal feeding on the
fears of his prey. And why have they changed? To serve the great and
terrible Dorothy, who is using the ruby slippers to steal all the magic
in Oz. To save them all, Amy must join the forces of wickedness and
Dorothy must die.

Fast-paced, clever, and addictive, the first book in this new series will excite young and old readers.
