The Tin Woodman, assisted by Woot the Wanderer, the Scarecrow of Oz, and Polychrome, the Rainbow’s Daughter are on an adventure searching for the pretty Munchkin girl that the Tin Woodman loved before the Old Witch of the East turned his body to tin, causing him to lose his heart. In a series of adventures sure to thrill „Oz” fans both old and new, these beloved friends face such challenges as a selfish giantess and a group of quarrelsome dragons – all to fulfill a promise made long ago to a beautiful Munchkin girl. „The Tin Woodman of Oz” is the twelfth „Land of Oz” book written by L. Frank Baum and was originally published on May 13, 1918. This novel provides a backstory for the original novel „The Wizard of Oz” and reversed a trend of declining sales for the series, perhaps as a result of a desire for nostalgia amid the carnage of World War I. The book was dedicated to the author’s grandson Frank Alden Baum.
