Different book representatives put this book as either #15 in the series, or #7.5. Either way the 6 short stories in this book do not have a place in the events of the full story books. My collection of Oz stories has this book as #15, so it’s the last book in my series.
The six short stories are all less than 10 pages long and my copy has a lot of pictures as well. So these would almost be flash fiction stories. Each story follows a different set of characters through a mini adventure in Oz.
The Cowardly Lion and Hungry Tiger get tired of being docile, Dorothy and Toto go exploring, Tik-Tok has a run-in with the Nome King, Ozma and the Wizard check on their subjects, Jack Pumpkinhead and the Saw-Horse go on a rescue mission, and Scarecrow and Tin Woodman have an accident.
They’re quick, they’re cute, and I liked reading them.
