The Royal Book of Oz is disappointing and it's probably lucky that I originally read Kabumpo in Oz first as I'm not sure I'd have bothered with Thompson after Royal Book While looking for his ancestors the Scarecrow slides down to Silver Island where he's acclaimed as Emperor; when Dorothy discovers that he's missing she and the Cowardly Lion go looking for him Thompson does introduce several new and interesting characters Sir Hokus of Pokes the Doubtful Dromedary and the Comfortable Camel but I never felt as though she had a good handle on many of Baum's characters particularly Dorothy although she does develop the Cowardly Lion than Baum had Unfortunately her effort to introduce new places goes awry; Silver Island on the other side of the world from Oz abounds with offensive racial stereotyping of Asian culture and customs Perhaps it's just a product of its time but that doesn't make it any attractive to read

The Royal Book of OzEd in The Royal Book of Oz was the first of Oz books written by Thompson with the Baum family's approval It is available now for the first time in over years with allcolor plates and over black and white drawings by John R Nei. While lacking the charm and fun of Baum’s Oz books it did have some charm of its own The characters were not really the same as previously written by Baum with Dorothy and Ozma getting cross and saying things they would never say Some of the new characters are as original and fun as the old I especially like Sir Hokus and the Doubtful Dromedary This Oz also felt different than Baum’s it was almost manic in energy Now I want to address the big silver elephant in the room The Silver Islanders They a uite obvious replacement for the Chinese and their portrayal is definitely racist with the royal children repeatedly banging their heads against the ground from bowing too enthusiastically The illustrations only make it worse it was obviously written at a time when Yellow Peril was at its height Though I’ll give the author credit for not making them all bad It’s somewhat understandable given the times but makes me cringeI have a deep affection for Oz in nearly all of its incarnations which is probably why this got 3 stars instead of 2 If I didn’t know it gets better I probably wouldn’t continue but I hear the next book is a big improvement How do you deal with racisthomophobicsexist portrayals in old books I tend to let it slide what does that say about me
