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” episode one aired on Nov 11, 2019. If you’d like to listen to the previous episode again, it aired October 5th, 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.
In the last episode, while Bud and Fluff glory in their new positions of authority and their possessions, Aunt Rivette wants to show off her good fortune. She asks Fluff if she can wear her cloak, and she becomes so tired walking that she wishes she could fly. Two wings sprout from Aunt Rivette's back, and she flies up in a confused panic.
We will pick up after Fluff convinces Bud that he can’t just play with his toys all day, even if he is the supreme ruler of the land. He must do all the disagreeable things a king is supposed to do, like attending the royal receptions he is invited to.
