Ozma, beloved ruler of Oz, has her hands full in this spin-off from two confirmed Oz aficionados. Trouble starts right away when Omby Amby notices a gray hair in his green beard. When he complains to Ozma, he discovers that everyone else seems to be aging as well. Before long, their ruler consults with Glinda, who offers more pieces of the puzzle, including a baby named Zoey, who is also the Man Who Lives Backwards. The rest of Ozma’s adventures rest on the broad shoulders of Tempus, a Parrot-Ox that appears whenever one begins to imagine the impossible. Ozma’s flying time machine and companion, he is a wonderful creature, chock-full of personality, and the other characters are all fairly true incarnations of Oz inhabitants.
