As with the first two books in this series, this one was just as fun with interesting characters and creative plot points. I loved the character of Bill/Billina (although Dorothy furthered my dislike of her by suggesting the hen should change her name). I did not like how much of a role Dorothy had, given how idiotic of a character she comes across as (seriously, you have to get advice from a chicken??), but I respect Baum writing more about her to appease his young fans.
Overall a good read and very fun adventure.
