9781626549845: The Magical Land of Noom

Come on a high-flying adventure with Johnny and Janey as they travel from their own backyard to the mysterious enchanted kingdom they discover on the other side of the moon.

When Johnny and Janey build their Flying Machine out of old boards and wooden spools, the last thing they expect is to actually take off! But that's just what happens, and before they know it, they're soaring high above the clouds on their way to the Magical Land of Noom.

Filled with such wonders as mushrooms that taste of ginger cake, and flowing springs of lemonade, Noom seems like a paradise to the children. Until they discover there is a wicked magician-and the plot thickens ...

This engaging tale, filled with quirky characters, is the brainchild of Johnny Gruelle, creator of Raggedy Ann and Andy. Although The Magical Land of Noom never gained the enormous popularity of the Raggedy Ann and Andy stories, it is arguably one of Gruelle's finest and most unforgettable works. Sought after by collectors and passed on from generation to generation, Gruelle's exquisite watercolor panels and whimsical pen-and-ink drawings have delighted readers for years.

Review:

Johnny Gruelle (1880-1938)--much-loved creator of Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy--started his career as a newspaper cartoonist. Inspired by the charm, wit, and commercial success of L. Frank Baum's Oz books, Gruelle created this magical adventure in 1922. This extraordinary, riveting story begins when Johnny and Janey decide to build a Flying Machine and head to the moon. Much to their surprise, their flight of fancy actually takes flight! They end up on the side of the moon that doesn't face Earth, the Magical Land of Noom (moon backwards). The adventure begins in a field of giant mushrooms that taste like cake, and the trouble begins when a scary, wicked old man named Jingles the Magician orders Johnny and Janey to stay away from his lemonade spring. As the story unfolds, we discover that Jingles has kidnapped the beautiful Princess of Nite, and the kids and their grandparents set out to return her to the throne. Along the way they meet the spirited Faun Boys, the Soft-Voiced Cow, and the exuberant Mr. Tiptoe. Lavishly illustrated with Gruelle's fantastic paintings and line drawings, this gorgeous reissue of the 1922 classic will be welcomed by imaginative young readers and nostalgic adults, too! (Ages 9 to 12)
