#AtoZChallenge : Jack Pumpkinhead of Oz!

Just in time for the second Thursday of April, today's blog is brought to you by the letter J!

Jack Pumpkinhead of Oz was Ruth Plumly Thompson's 9th book about Oz, written in 1929 and is the 23rd book overall in the Oz series orginally started by L. Frank Baum.

Jack Pumpkinhead is a very popular character first introduced by the Royal Historian of Oz (L. Frank Baum). Now, Ruth Plumly Thompson takes a crack at telling a fine story about this very unusual character brought to life by the Powder of Life.

The story starts out with the return of Peter Brown, a young boy from Philedelphia, who wishes his way back to Oz, only to discover Jack Pumpkinhead. It turns out that good old Jack has night vision. Who knew?

Of course, then it's time to head for Emerald City and before we know it, Jack and Peter are riding an Iffen.

After a time, the Bearded Baron makes an appearance. You gotta love them boots!

And wouldn't you know, the Bearded Baron's rather lengthy beard makes for great fireworks!!

Seems like a lot of battles in this story, including Ozma in chains...

Of course, Her Majesty eventually overcomes and wins out over Evil. Then there's the Guard with the Green Whiskers, a most under-rated character in Emerald City.

You've seen him before, though you may not realize it...
