    1. I listened to this book (in audiobook form via Librivox) in its entirety during third shift at work. It was really fun. A few oddities, and a creative story setup (from a writer's perspective) at the very beginning. The adventures were very entertaining and colorful. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. My only complaint, which is slight, is that the ending lacked a little where the rest of the book excelled. The ending was a bit disappointing, but I would still rate this as a suggested read to anyone [...]

    2. Three young girls wander into an enchanted forest and encounter a fairy woman, who tells them she's bored with her perfect, immortal existence and wants to try life as a human. After some discussion, the fairy decides to become a prince, because boys get to have more adventures than girls, apparently, which is a rather odd justification considering the number of adventurous girls in Baum's other books. But then again Baum writes quite a few essentially female spirits who temporarily incarnate as [...]

    3. An fairy turns mortal and goes adventuring. The premise is captivating, the narrative is charming and well executed. Baum's odd sentimental sexism is slightly more subtle here than in some of his other works. On the other hand he allows a main character to be temporarily transgender as if it were the most natural strategy in the world with no romantic or sexual complications implied at all, I found that entirely refreshing.

    4. A great frank baum storyFull of magic, and fairies and evil hearted villains, this a good read for young adults with a love of gentle adventure stories.

    5. As far as I know, this is not related to the Oz series. It's still worth a look.A fairy is bored and wants to go adventuring, so she asks some noble ladies to change her into a prince. She then goes around the island of Yew. After conking many thieves on the head and defeating King Wul-Takim, Prince Marvel encounters his first companion named Nerle. Nerle is a masochist. He loves to be imprisoned, tortured, or otherwise injured. He is always disappointed whenever good fortune happens to him, lik [...]

    6. Something for your inner Ozophile: a quick, breeezy read of another fantasy world (no, not Mo or Ix, still another) created by L. Frank Baum over a century ago: the enchanted island of Yew.Our hero is an androgynous fairy, who, out of boredom at being immortal, decides on a lark to become a brave young knight for a year and seek adventure. Transformed, he is Prince Marvel, but he keeps his fairy powers, as they might prove handy in a world where you will quite likely encounter giants, dwarves, w [...]

    7. This book is more of a classic fairy tale/adventure story from Baum. I think children and adults could get something from this book. I really like the conventions that Baum invokes, as well as the new twists he puts on old ones. With some decent illustrations, I could see this book out on children's bookshelves today. I can't believe how long ago it was written. Forget pre-internet or pre-Hitler. We're talking six years before the Wright Brothers' famous flight. There is a tone and craft here th [...]

    8. Fascinating story - just as entertaining as the Oz Chronicles with some very interesting gender-bending elements. I loved the character of Prince Marvel, whose really a female fairy, and the way s/he succeeds at all her tasks, not by behaving in a typically masculine fashion (as you'd expect to find in a traditional fairy tale), but by using what might be perceived as feminine traits - cooperation, compassion, negotiation, kindness. I loved it!

    9. This book grew on me. At first I didn't think I was going to like it but found it fun reading. It is real fantasy not Sci-Fi. It is "Wizard of Oz" type fantasy in which the author is really not trying to make you think it is reality and yet allows you to 'live' the adventures of fantasy. It is the type of book that is 'fun' to read and one in which one pretty much needs to find earlier writers find such a book. It has a rather interesting ending I didn't expect.

    10. An interesting story about a fairy who spends some time seeking adventures in the guise of a mortal prince. It reminded me a bit of the Wizard of Oz (for obvious enough reasons) - there was even a place where a charlatan wizard is exposed for his manipulations. In the end, though, I felt the story lacked direction.

    11. Overall, just a jolly good read, and very funny. Also, no racist humor yay. Although it is not usually on the list of Oz-associated books, if American Fairy Tales counts for containing the same fairy species as The Life and Times of Santa Claus, then this one counts too.

    12. Very much a kid's book, but still surprisingly imaginative and fun. The main character is a sort of living Deus Ex Machina - I can do anything because I am magic! - but again, I think this is forgivable since it i a kid's story.

    13. So far the only good chapters were 5 and 6 and I'm ready to quit the book after reading half of it unconsecutively. But it gets more than two stars because chapter 5 and 6 were really good.

    14. I loved this book way more than his Oz books! if you have children, please read this to them, they will love it!

    15. One of the best non-Oz stories, with fairies, princes, fairies who are princes, and a masochist sidekick (no, really).
