Summary

Oz is aging! Ozma, the lovely girl ruler of Oz, must find a way to restore the enchantment that keeps her people young and vibrant. A lovable but puzzling Parrot-Ox named Tempus carries Ozma back through time to seek the source of the aging enchantment. Ozma meets strange versions of her closest friends in an alternate timestream: Glinda, the Wizard, the Cowardly Lion, even Ozma herself! Along the way Ozma gains new allies in her quest: the irrepressible Dr. Majestico, the sympathetic Brussle, and the lovely Princess Ayala. Come journey with Ozma on her greatest adventure as she discovers the final amazing secret that involves the old witch Mombi, a city where nothing is what it seems, and the paradoxical future-history of The Man Who Lives Backwards.

Critic reviews

"Released to celebrate the 100th anniversary of L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, this new Oz adventure is true in its narrative style to the spirit of the beloved Oz books...both the action and the humor quotient are high, and Oz fans will read to the expected happy ending." ( Booklist)
"The writing is crisp and moves the episodic story along effortlessly. This is a handsome book...if your readers can't get enough of Oz, this should be on the shelves." ( School Library Journal)
"Edward Einhorn has captured the real spirit of the Emerald City in his Paradox in Oz. This gorgeous book, with a wealth of witty and archetypically Ozian illustrations by Eric Shaower, opens when a plague of aging descends on Princess Ozma's realm, forcing her to take action to save her citizens...This stefnal material is incorporated brilliantly into the Baumian weltanschauung, and Einhorn's new characters harmonize perfectly with the famous ones...This book insures that Oz will enter the new millenium in style." ( Asimov's)
