The Tin Woodman of Oz: The Tin Man and the Scarecrow are regaling each other with tales of past adventures in the Tin Man's castle in the Winkie Country when a Gillikin boy named Woot wanders into their presence. After he is fed and rested (which the Tin Woodman and the Scarecrow, not being of blood and flesh, do not need), Woot asks the Tin Man how he became made of tin. The Tin Man tells Woot the story of how he had once been a flesh-and-blood woodman in love with a maiden named Nimmie Aimee. Woot suggests that since the Tin Man now has a kind and loving heart, it is his duty to find Nimmie Aimee and make her Empress of the Winkies. The Scarecrow agrees, so the three set off to search for the girl. Will they find her, and if they do, will she still love the Tin Man? This lavishly illustrated edition has more than one hundred illustrations by John R. Neill.

While Woot catches up on his eating, the Tin Woodman and the Scarecrow provide their personal histories, prompting Woot to wonder why the Emperor has never sought out his former love, Nimmie Amee, from whom he drifted apart as he was gradually replaced by tin limbs, without a heart.
