The Tin Woodman, ruler of the Winkle Country of the Land of Oz, is happy in his tin castle with his best friend, the Scarecrow, at his side. But a visit from Woot, a young traveler, reminds him of the days when he was flesh-and-blood and loved a fair munchkin girl named Nimmie Amee. Dragons, a mighty sorceress and a hungry beast called the Hippo-gy-raf stand between the Tin Woodsman and his love, but with help from Polychrome, Ozma and Dorothy, he eventually finds Nimmie—who is not quite convinced she wants to become Empress of the Winkle Country.
The Tin Woodman of Oz is the twelfth book in the Oz series. It sold 18,600 copies upon publication in 1918, reversing a trend of declining sales for L. Frank Baum’s Oz books.
The wonderful legacy of L. Frank Baum’s world lives on today in the work of authors like Gregory Maguire and Robert A. Heinlein, and in Oz the Great and Powerful, the film starring James Franco, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, and Mila Kunis.
