No Place Like Oz is a e-novella part of the Dorothy Must Die trilogy by Danielle Paige. It is a prequel to the series and was published before the first book to set the scene.


After returning to Kansas, Dorothy Gale has realized that the dreary fields of Kansas don’t compare to the vibrant landscapes of Oz. And although she’s happy to be reunited with Aunt Em, she misses her friends from the yellow brick road. But most of all, Dorothy misses the fame and the adventure. In Kansas she’s just another prairie girl, but in Oz she was a hero. So Dorothy is willing to do anything to get back, because there really is no place like Oz. But returning to the land she left comes at a price, and after Dorothy is through with it, Oz will never be the same.

Plot SummaryEdit

It has been approximately two years since Dorothy returned home. News of her survival was everywhere, even parades were made. But she is now getting sick of her mundane prairie life, - especially the pig slop - until on her sixteenth birthday she gets a very special gift addressed from Glinda.
