After returning to Kansas, Dorothy Gale has realized that the dreary fields of Kansas don’t compare to the vibrant landscapes of Oz. And although she’s happy to be reunited with Aunt Em, she misses her friends from the yellow brick road. But most of all, Dorothy misses the fame and the adventure. In Kansas she’s just another prairie girl, but in Oz she was a hero. So Dorothy is willing to do anything to get back, because there really is no place like Oz. But returning to the land she left comes at a price, and after Dorothy is through with it, Oz will never be the same.

“They say you can’t go home again. Well, I’m proof that’s not true. Home isn’t just where you’re born-it’s where you belong. I found my home and I let it go. But I came back. Now I was home for good, and I would never, ever make the mistake of leaving again. The past was gone forever. There was no place like here.”
What did I think of the book?
What a lovely insight in the story of how Dorothy Gale returned to her family in Kansas. No place like Oz is a real good story. It shows her return and what it means for Dorothy to be in Kansas. Like the title says, she misses Oz.
This story show me how Dorothy got back in Oz and went bad to the bitch she turned into. I truly loved it. Without this novella, the story would keep questions unanswered.
