Всесвітньо відомий американський письменник Ліман Френк Баум (1856–1919), створивши казкову Країну Оз, населив її героями, які одразу полюбилися читачам. Майже всі вони стануть учасниками цієї книжки. Не обійдеться й без маленького Чарівника. А як інакше, коли йдеться про пригоди в казковій країні? Однак у «Загубленій Принцесі Країни Оз» сталося незвичне: лиходій-чаклун підступно викрав його валізку з чарівними інструментами. Тепер друзям доведеться без їх допомоги долати численні небезпеки під час пошуків зниклої Принцеси. Проте гострого розуму та знань Чарівникові ніколи не бракувало.

Аннотация

В історії, яку Ліман Френк Баум розповідає цього разу, є багато подій, на які читачі давно чекали. Нарешті Дороті стає жителькою Країни Оз. Ба більше: віднині вона не хвилюватиметься про своїх стареньких родичів – дядька Генрі та тітоньку Ем – їх Принцеса Озма теж запросила до своїх володінь. І все було б добре у чарівному королівстві, але давній ворог Країни Оз і її правительки – Король Номів уже виношує зловісні плани і збирає навколо себе ще гірших лиходіїв. Вони мають одне бажання: зруйнувати Країну Оз, а її жителів зробити рабами. В формате PDF A4 сохранен издательский макет.

An interesting aspect of this book is that no one from Oz appears in it until its climax. Baum originally wrote most of it as an original fantasy novel over ten years prior to its publication. The action takes place on three islands—Coregos, Regos and Pingaree—and within the Nome King's caverns.
