The road was smooth and well paved, now, and the country about was beautiful, so that the travelers rejoiced in leaving the forest far behind, and with it the many dangers they had met in its gloomy shades.
This was a fun one. Chapter 10! Still going out of order, a little. These are the outskirts of the Emerald City, where everything is green. Green is a hugely frustrating color to work with and I have no idea if this even looks right; I might tweak it in future… and I’m allowing myself some yellow/gold for the Emerald City scenes, because why not.
I want the different peoples of Oz to have different consistent architectural styles. Munchkins build domed, slightly naturalistic buildings; Emerald City folks build harsh geometric spires; Winkies (eventually) build jagged, stalagmitic things.
Excited to get to the city, but probably doing chapter 9 first.

Some Bunny Special


According to the McGraws’ Merry Go Round in Oz, the Easter Bunny lives in the Munchkin Country of Oz, and is a loyal subject of Ozma. Edward Wagenknecht is quoted in the most recent Baum Bugle as having said that he thought Merry Go Round was “the only Oz book that includes distinctively Christian references,” but a footnote points out that L. Frank Baum used Santa Claus in The Road to Oz. Of…

Oz and Uz


While L. Frank Baum claimed that he took the name “Oz” from a filing cabinet drawer, there’s some doubt as to whether this is actually true or just something he thought was more interesting than the truth, I couldn’t say. I believe his widow did discount the filing cabinet explanation at one point. Considering how short the word is, it’s no surprise that people have tried to connect it with all…

the Female Triad stock character: a group of three girls who are mostly seen together. often used in fantasy fiction, but may alternatively be three girls who have different tempers that play off each other. they are usually differentiated by distinct hair colors: blonde, brunette and redhead.


L. Frank Baum never mentioned their hair colors, but John R. Neill made Dorothy blonde and often portrayed Trot as a brunette and Betsy Bobbin as a redhead.
