The Land of Oz

The second book of Oz series.

The title is "The Land of Oz" now. It used to be "The Marvelous Land of Oz". The Japanese title "Ozu no niji no kuni" means "The Rainbow Country of Oz". Why did they choose the word "rainbow"? Someone said that it might have been taken from the song "Over the Rainbow" from the MGM movie. I think that guess is probably right.

Many new characters appear in this book. They become important and popular in the later books.
