The audio podcast of the beloved L. Frank Baum story Queen Zixi of Ix or The Story of the Magic Cloak

Queen Zixi of Ix, or The Story of the Magic Cloak is a children's book that was written in 1905 (This year is the 101st anniversary of its being published by the legendary L. Frank Baum and illustrated by Frederick Richardson. It was originally serialized in the early 20th Century American children's magazine St. Nicholas. The events of the book alternate between Noland and Ix, two neighboring regions to the Land of Oz, and Baum himself commented this was the best book he had written. (In a letter to his eldest son, Frank Joslyn Baum, he said it was "nearer to the 'old-fashioned' fairy tale than anything I have yet accomplished." The book was made into a movie, The Magic Cloak of Oz, in 1914. Although no part of the book's story takes place in the Land of Oz, by the time the movie was made, it had become clear that the Oz franchise was Baum's most popular creation, and Hollywood salesmanship, still in its infancy, wanted to take advantage of that popularity.
