Featured in

Tonight, we’ll read the next part to our 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" part 1 aired on Nov 11, 2019. If you’d like to listen to the previous episode again, it aired September 2nd, 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 Seven.

In the last episode, King Bud and Princess Fluff preside over the royal court and have their first try at official decision-making. At the end of session, their miserable Aunt Rivette bursts in and demands to be given better accommodations and money to spend since she is family.
