John Dough, a living gingerbread man and Chick the Cherub, an incubator baby, have a series of adventures in the borderlands of Oz. Baum added a mystery by not revealing whether Chick was a boy or a girl, as Gene Stratton-Porter was to do with Scout in The Keeper of the Bees in 1925. While not written as an Oz book, the characters appear in The Road to Oz. Read online at Hathitrust.
