Tin Woodman of Oz
Woot the Wanderer finds himself at the home of the Tin Woodman of Oz and desires to hear the story of how a woodman made of tin could come to be. The Tin Woodman tells the tale of how he was once Nick Chopper, a man of flesh and blood, in love with a young girl named Nimmie Amee. The Wicked Witch of the East was not happy about this and so she enchanted his axe and had him cut off his limbs one at a time, which were replaced with limbs made of tin. Nimmie Amee still loved the tin Nick, but he was unable to love her back because he had no heart left in his tin body. The conversation makes the Tin Woodman decide to go and find his old love, with the help of Woot and the Scarecrow. Meeting other characters and adventures along the way, they venture to find Nimmie Amee on a quest to see if she still loves the Tin Woodman and whether the two can live happily ever after. L. Frank Baum (1856-1919) was an American author of children's books, most famous for his "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." Baum wrote 13 sequels to his first Oz book and still has a huge fan base to this day. "The Tin Woodman of Oz" was the 12th book in the Oz series and serves as a back story to "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz."
