The Road to Oz is much more character driven than the previous stories. While each book introduces its own cast of characters, and brings back new ones, this story focused a lot more on the characters than it did on the fairy adventure - which was really a just a road trip to get to Ozma's birthday party.

ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE NOW.
