Pessim's Island is an island near the Land of Oz. It's lone occupant is a man named Pessim.

Description

The island itself is beautiful, with plenty of trees, shrubs, flowers, and green turf. There are no paths or any sign of civilization, except for one small, shed-like house.

There is a hill on the island which gives a view of the ocean on three sides. Behind the hill is a forest of nut trees: walnuts, filberts, almonds, and chestnuts. There are also melon vines and cherry trees and, near the forest, wild plums. There is also a bush of rare Lavender Berries and one of Dark Purple Berries which can be found nowhere else, and which possess unusual properties.

History

The island was once a deserted island until Pessim's neighbors, seeing he was quarrelsome and fault-finding, brought him there and left him alone. He was king of the island and explored it, tasting its many varied fruits. He discovered the properties of the Lavender Berries and Dark Purple Berries.

Trot, Cap'n Bill, and Flipper emerged on Pessim's Island after traveling through some underground tunnels. Finding Pessim a disagreeable sort after three days, the two humans left the island, being carried by the Ork. (The Scarecrow of Oz)
