Tonight, we’ll read the fourth part to our "The Magic Cloak" series, from the book "Queen Zixi of Ix, or The Story of the Magic Cloak", a children's book written by L. Frank Baum and published in 1905. The Magic Cloak episode one aired on Nov 11, 2019. If you’d like to listen to the previous episode again, Part 3 aired July 15th, 2020.
The events of the book alternate between Noland and Ix, two neighboring regions to the Land of Oz. Baum, who also wrote the Wizard of Oz, commented this was the best book he had written. This episode will start at the opening of Chapter Four.
In the last episode, orphaned siblings Timothy (who everyone calls "Bud"), the orphaned son of a ferryman who, with his sister Meg (nicknamed "Fluff"), enter town with their stern Aunt Rivette. Timothy is declared the new king of Noland. His sister becomes Princess Fluff, and they take residence in the royal palace.
