Books by Gregory Maguire


A Lion Among Men (2008)

This book was somewhat a disappointment. I'd read "Wicked" years ago and enjoyed it very much. This book, the third in the Wicked Years series, kept putting me to sleep. The story follows the life journey of the Cowardly Lion. It has a slow start, but eventually picked up enough speed to keep me ...

Out of Oz (2011)

The best of the series! (after Wicked) This book was well worth plodding through Son of a Witch and A Lion Among Men. I think Maguire did a great job wrapping up the series with this last book. It was way more concise, witty, and satisfying than the middle two books. He did, however, keep a good ...

Egg & Spoon (2014)

Multilayered and rich and humorous and magical. Set in early 20th century Russia, this is the story of peasant Elena and wealthy Ekaterina, and how a trip to see the Tsar's godson and a damaged train track and a Faberge egg cause them to step into each other's lives. Part comedy of errors and p...

Egg and Spoon (2014)

3 1/2 stars -This was a bit different from the typical kid's fare. I liked that it was Russian and drew on the Russian folktales. I liked the characters - particularly Baba Yaga and Elena. The writing was very good - Maguire has a real literary flare that is still quite readable for kids, but ...

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West (2015)

I love my physical edition of this novel...while the reading experience wasn't as good as always thought that it would be.A thing that I got amazed when I started to "label" this book, in the process of my review, in my virtual shelves of Goodreads was how many different genres the novel touches....

Lost (2002)

I got my hands on Gregory Maguire's Lost and knew that I should read it prior to Wicked, only so that I would be able to put my full attention into the series instead of sidestepping it to read Lost. Besides, I figured that this would be a quick, engaging read, especially after I had read Confes...

Leaping Beauty: And Other Animal Fairy Tales (2006)

The premise is that Maguire (he of Wicked fame) took common fairy tales and retold them with twists, and animals at the main characters. For example, Goldilocks becomes “Goldiefox and the three chickens.” Hansel and Gretel becomes “Hamster and Gerbil.” I love it for that premise alone. Oh, but it...

What-the-Dickens: The Story of a Rogue Tooth Fairy (2007)

You may not know Gregory Maguire by name, but you probably know something he wrote: namely, Wicked. Maguire has done a number of books based in the realm of fairy tales mixed with a shot of the dark and not always happy-endings. What-the-Dickens is a book that mixes the stark reality of the moder...
