While Dorothy and her friend Ozma visit Glinda, they find an incident in Glinda's Magic Record book. Two types of people who live in the land of Oz that neither Glinda nor Ozma knew much about have declared war on each other. Ozma, Dorothy, and the Sawhorse immediately make preparations to investigate.

As the roads grow rougher, the Sawhorse and their wagon have to be left behind. Ozma and Dorothy find their way to one of the warring countries: the country of the Flatheads. These people don't have the very tops of their heads where their brains were supposed to be, and every one of them is a dictator of something. They are led by a Supreme Dictator whose wife was turned into a Golden Pig by the queen of the Skeezers.

Ozma and Dorothy have no luck in speaking to the Flatheads and end up practically prisoners on the island of the Skeezers, when the island is lowered under the water to prevent an attack made by the Flatheads. With the Skeezer queen turned into a vain and useless Diamond Swan, the Skeezers have no way of escape. It is up to Glinda to gather her friends and travel to the rescue, and one Skeezer named Ervic becomes an immense help to everybody.
