    Jason Brant, a boy who has recently moved from California to New Jersey, discovers a chest of magic in his attic. He uses this magic to transport to Oz and travel in the company of Button-Bright, a squid who used to work as a cab driver, and a magically enlarged chinchilla named Andy. According to his biography on Amazon, the author has a pet chinchilla, and this is one of the few kinds of animal that HADN'T already had an adventure in Oz. There was a good amount of fairly direct satire that rem Jason Brant, a boy who has recently moved from California to New Jersey, discovers a chest of magic in his attic.

According to his biography on Amazon, the author has a pet chinchilla, and this is one of the few kinds of animal that HADN'T already had an adventure in Oz. There was a good amount of fairly direct satire that reminded me of The Phantom Tollbooth. The bit with the Lesser of Two Weevils is very much in that style, while the Multi-Land and Kingdom of Style episodes comment on some of the shallowness of society. The dialogue has a modern feel, which is fine for non-Ozites like Jason, but seems a little out of place for Button-Bright and some of the others. There's some humor in Professor Wogglebug being unable to speak in a non-pretentious fashion without magical assistance, and Harvey the squid conversed in a vaudevillian manner reminiscent of King Anko in The Sea Fairies. Hey, maybe they knew each other back in Harvey's ocean days. There's an interesting development in Harvey's desire to start a cab company in Oz, which had sort of already been tried with the Scalawagons.

    I received this book for free at my request but the opinion is of my own. Jason just moves and finds a magic chest that takes him to Oz. There he uncovers a plot against the kingdom of OZ. He must work with four new friends to stop this plot before it’s too late. If you grew up on oz and loved the stories this is a great edition as we see a few familiar names from the beloved OZ books.

    THERE IS A GIANT CHINCHILLA. I love chinchillas, so I just had to listen to this audiobook. This is a light and fun children's book about a boy name Jason and his magical travels and the friends he makes along the way. Such as a Giant Chinchilla. Jason and his chinchilla get in all sorts of trouble on their way to the Emerald City of Oz to warn the citizens of a great danger looming on the horizon. Will they make it in time? This book is good for children of all ages. THERE IS A GIANT CHINCHILLA. I love chinchillas, so I just had to listen to this audiobook.
