4th Oz Book! YAY!

Rumour is Gregory Maguire author of Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, Son of a Witch and A Lion Among Men is going to write a 4th and final book tentatively titled Out of Oz. I LOVED Wicked and enjoyed the other two although not as much as the original. I kind of hoped that he would continue the Oz books and give each Wizard of Oz character their own book. I'm wondering if since A Lion Among Men-the last one in the series which focused on the cowardly Lion-was the weakest so far he just decided that now was a good time to end the Oz story. Either way I'm happy there is another one coming out. I liked his take on Cinderella with Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister as well but not nearly as much as the Oz books. Can't wait to see how it all ends!


  1. I read and super enjoyed Wicked. I listed to Son of a Witch on audiobook - and enjoyed it but it wasn't nearly as good. I think I'm going to listen to Wicked again before I try out the third book. Thanks for the info.
