A work of Jacob Abbott, an American writer of children's books, was published in 1858 under the title “History of King Richard the Second of England”.

This is one of the Oz stories, one of the most remarkable and intersting among them. The plot of the story is in many ways similar to "Ozma of Oz". Here we meet a girl and an animal who find themselves in a fairyland and there meet a person named Tik-Tok and get engaged into the fight with a ruler of the Nomes. The book is full of adventures with different characters and wonderful creatures. We meet the heroes whom we already know from the early books and the new characters like Tititi-Hoochoo and Quox the Dragon who are quite amusing. The story will make you smile in many scenes and in the final chapters you will be constantly bursting with laughter.
