The Shaggy Man of Oz


The Shaggy Man of Oz

"The Shaggy Man of Oz" (1949) is the thirty-eighth of the Oz books created by L. Frank Baum and the second and last by Jack Snow. It was illustrated by Frank Kramer.

It is discovered that the love magnet, which was owned by The Shaggy Man (from "The Road to Oz") has broken, and only its creator, the evil Conjo, can fix it. Meanwhile, Twink and Tom are pulled through their television to the Isle of Conjo in the Nonestic Ocean along with the wooden clown Twiffle. Soon the Shaggy Man arrives and saves them from Conjo.

Jack Snow was the fourth official chronicler of Oz, succeeding John R. Neill and Ruth Plumly Thompson who in turn succeeded Oz's creator L. Frank Baum. The two Oz novels written by Snow are controversial because they freely continue the adventures of various Oz characters created by Baum, yet they pointedly omit any appearances by (or even mentions of) the vast range of colorful characters added to the Oz canon by Thompson. This would seem to indicate that Snow did not consider Thompson a legitimate heir to Baum's fictional universe, even while Snow was appointing himself Thompson's successor. This book in particular heavily reworks the same essential territory as Baum's "John Dough and the Cherub".
