The Road to Oz. Baum's map of the surrounding countries of Oz first seen as an endpaper in Tik-Tok of Oz (1913) depicts Merryland as being across the desert from the Land of Oz and north of Hiland and Loland; linking the book to L. Frank Baum's famous Oz series.


This story is about the adventures of a little girl named Dot and a little boy named Tot in a land reached by floating on a river that flowed through a tunnel. The land was called Merryland and was split into seven valleys.
