Dot Freeland and Tot Thompson float away in a boat while on a picnic and find themselves entering Merryland. They travel through each of the seven valleys of the fairyland and have many strange experiences before leaving the country and returning home.
Although it is not one of the "Famous Forty" Oz books, Merryland is a magical country near the Land of Oz. In The Road to Oz, the Queen of Merryland and the Candy Man visited the Emerald City to attend Ozma's birthday party.
