Welcome fellow travelers. We are about to trek ten million steps (3,600 miles) across mountains, plains and deserts ­during summer’s heat and winter’s snow.

The Silver Slippers

by Olana Stuart

$9.95 (plus tax & shipping)

The Silver Slippers takes up the story of Oz where L Frank Baum’s classic story ends. Estrellita Sanders is wandering in the mountains near her home when she is summoned by the Scarecrow, the new wizard. The Silver Slippers have separated into the different colors of the rainbow. If they are brought back together again, the power could be used to protect or destroy the land of Oz. Stelli must find the six parts of the Silver Slippers before they are found by anyone else.

A delightful tale of adventure and imagination, The Silver Slippers also deals with questions about friendship and honesty.
