Brief Description: The emerald age of Oz is over, and Ozma's kingdom has been overthrown. The evil witch Mombi has hidden a valuable tool from the people of Oz...their knowledge. With no memory of their land, the magic it held, or the peace they knew under Ozma's rule, a darkness has settled over Oz. Now in hiding, Ozma has joined forces with Dorothy and several allies of Oz to organize a rebellion and restore Oz to it's former glory. Despite their best effots, the key to success may lie in a seemingly ordinary boy and girl who come from the nonmagical world outside of Oz.
