Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John McDonough

Children Ages 8+ • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

While on an ocean liner bound for Australia, caught in a storm, Dorothy is washed overboard. Clinging to a wooden chicken coop, she drifts to the mysterious shores of Ev, a kingdom that lies across the Deadly Desert from her beloved Oz. In his third book about Oz, certainly one of the finest in the series, L. Frank Baum reunites Dorothy with her friends, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion. Along the way she meets a hen named Bill, a clockwork man, a wicked princess who switches heads to suit her mood, and finally, Ozma, the kind and beautiful new ruler of Oz. John McDonough immerses himself in the story as he reads the 1907 classic, telling the tale with his storytelling flair and a voice as comforting as a grand-father’s lap. S.E.S.
