The Tin Woodman of Oz by L. Frank Baum

The Tin Woodman, along with the Scarecrow and Woot the Wanderer, set off on a journey to find the Tin Woodman’s former love, Nimmie Amee. Along the way they have many adventures including meeting the Tin Woodman’s near twin, the Tin Soldier, and meet many old friends including Polychrome the Rainbow’s Daughter.

As with all Oz books, this twelfth one, The Tin Woodman of Oz is filled with adventure and amusement. Wordplay isn’t as common in this one, but when it’s there it’s lovely (for example, the Tin Soldier’s original name was Captain Fyter). I highly recommend this and all the Oz books to people of all ages.
