She sprinkles the powder on Jack, bringing him to life and startling Tip, whom Mombi catches and threatens with revenge. Tip leaves with Jack that night and steals the Powder of Life because Mombi plans to turn him into a marble statue in the morning.

As they head for the Emerald City , Tip uses the Powder to animate the Sawhorse so Jack can ride him -- for even though his wooden body doesn't tire, it can get worn away from all that walking. Tip loses them as the tireless Saw-Horse gallops faster and he meets with General Jinjur 's all-girl Army of Revolt which is planning to overthrow the Scarecrow , who's ruled the Emerald City since the end of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
The companions arrive at the castle of the Tin Woodman , who now rules the Winkie Kingdom , and plan to retake the Emerald City. On their way back they are diverted by the magic of Mombi whom Jinjur recruited to help her apprehend them , joined by the Highly Magnified and Thoroughly Educated Wogglebug , and aided by the Field Mice and their queen.
Jinjur and her soldiers are scared by the Field Mice out of the main palace, but they still occupy the Emerald City itself. The Scarecrow proposes manufacturing a flying beast called a Gump by which they can escape through the air. Tip animates this collection of palace furniture with the Powder of Life, and they fly off, with no control over their direction, out of Oz and land in a nest of Jackdaws with all of the birds' stolen goods.
In their attempt to drive the Jackdaws from their sanctuary, the Scarecrow's straw is taken away and the Gump's wings are broken. Using the Wishing Pills they discover with the Powder of Life, Tip and his friends escape and journey to the palace of Glinda the Good. They learn from Glinda that the rightful ruler of Oz, a girl named Ozma , was hidden by the Wizard of Oz long ago and that she is the rightful ruler of the Emerald City, not the Scarecrow who didn't really want the job anyway.
Glinda discovered that the Wizard made three visits to Mombi, but not what they were for. The witch tries to deceive them by disguising a chambermaid as herself which fails , but manages to elude them as they search for her in the Emerald City. Just as their time runs out, the Tin Woodman plucks a rose to wear in his lapel, unaware that this is the transformed Mombi!

Glinda discovers the deception right away and leads the pursuit of Mombi, who is finally caught as she tries to run across the Deadly Desert in the form of a fast- and long-running Griffin though later books state that anyone who touches the Desert is transformed into dust.
Under pressure from Glinda, Mombi admits that the Wizard brought her the infant Ozma and that she used her magic to transform her into a boy -- Tip, the boy who she'd been guardian of. At first he's shocked to learn this, but Glinda and his friends help him to accept his destiny, and Mombi performs her last spell Or is it? In The Tin Woodman of Oz , the Scarecrow asks a boy who'd been given twenty legs whether Mombi had transformed him, based on a physical description of her.
The restored Ozma whose physical appearance differs considerably between this book and the next, Ozma of Oz leads her friends in retaking the Emerald City. The Tin Woodman and the Scarecrow, now stuffed with paper money that's worthless in Oz except as stuffing, return to the Winkie Country with Jack Pumpkinhead, the Gump is disassembled at his request though his head, which was a hunting trophy, can still speak , Glinda returns to her palace in the Quadling Country, the Wogglebug remains as Ozma's advisor, and the Saw-Horse becomes her personal steed.
General Jinjur 's Army of Revolt was an inspiration of the Suffragette movement, with which Baum was very familiar, and was a supporter himself; his mother-in-law was the famous suffrage activist Matilda Joslyn Gage.

Baum had wanted Fred Stone and David Montgomery to recap their roles as the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman for the second show, but the two refused, fearing typecasting. The play, unfortunately, was a flop. In addition to being part of the basis for Baum's The Fairylogue and Radio-Plays , Land of Oz was the final Selig Polyscope Oz film, and has been brought to the screen several additional times. The film was recently recovered, but the soundtrack of the second reel is missing. The novel passed out of copyright protection and entered the public domain in The Wonderful Land of Oz was an extremely low-budget production from independent filmmaker Barry Mahon, which starred his son, Chandos Mahon, as Tip.
Filmation's Journey Back to Oz , recast the army of revolt with green elephants and Tip with Dorothy, but was essentially an uncredited adaptation of this book.
