What people are saying about The Rundelstone of Oz
". . . Rundelstone exhibits a lightness of touch, a fertility of invention, and a sureness of pacing that add up to an alluring performance."
—Paul Di Filippo, Realms of Fantasy

—Sherwood Smith, Mythprint
"Told with beautiful and atmospheric prose. . . . at the end the loose ends wrap up in a satisfactory conclusion. . . . Eric Shanower's black-and-white line illustrations suit the book perfectly."
—Margo Lemieux, The [Attleboro - N. Attleboro, MA] Sunday Chronicle
"In The Rundelstone of Oz, author Eloise McGraw demonstrates the kind of writing skills that have marked her as a three time Newbery honoree. The latest entry into the legendary fantasy world of Oz first created by L. Frank Baum, The Rundelstone of Oz is a welcome addition that will become as classic an entertainment as any in the Oz series. Superbly illustrated by Eric Shanower in the 'Oz Tradition', The Rundelstone of Oz is a 'must' for Oz fans, as well as a highly recommended acquisition for school and community library collections."
—Midwest Book Review
". . . sure to delight Oz fans. The story can stand on its own and be enjoyed by readers unfamiliar with Baum's tales. . . . a charming tale of friendship and magic. . . . This book is a fitting tribute to Ms. McGraw . . ."
—Charlotte Decker, Catholic Library World
"Eric Shanower's illustrations are impressive, as usual. . . . a handsome volume for any Oz fan's library. . . . a worthy capstone to [Eloise McGraw's] writing about Oz."
—J.L. Bell, The Baum Bugle, A Journal of Oz
"The author’s love for Oz is evident as she captures the fun and fantasy of the land Frank L. Baum [sic] created so very long ago. Veteran Oz illustrator Eric Shanower liberally decorates the story’s pages in true Ozian fashion. For those who don’t wish Oz to end, then this is a certain addition to their collection."
-Pam Webb, Christian Library World
