RINKITINK IN OZ
L. Frank Baum
Wherein is recorded the Perilous Quest of
Prince Inga of Pingaree and King
Rinkitink in the Magical
Isles that lie beyond
By L. Frank Baum
"Royal Historian of Oz"
Introducing this Story
Here is a story with a boy hero, and a boy of whom you have never
before heard. There are girls in the story, too, including our old
friend Dorothy, and some of the characters wander a good way from the
Land of Oz before they all assemble in the Emerald City to take part in
Ozma's banquet. Indeed, I think you will find this story quite
different from the other histories of Oz, but I hope you will not like
it the less on that account.
If I am permitted to write another Oz book it will tell of some
thrilling adventures encountered by Dorothy, Betsy Bobbin, Trot and the
Patchwork Girl right in the Land of Oz, and how they discovered some
amazing creatures that never could have existed outside a fairy-land. I
have an idea that about the time you are reading this story of
Rinkitink I shall be writing that story of Adventures in Oz.
Don't fail to write me often and give me your advice and suggestions,
which I always appreciate. I get a good many letters from my readers,
but every one is a joy to me and I answer them as soon as I can find
time to do so.
in CALIFORNIA, 1916.
