From the author of the Wizard of Oz, Queen Zixi of Ix, or The Story of the Magic Cloak, is a children’s book written by L. Frank Baum and illustrated by Frederick Richardson. 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,” and in many respects, it adheres more closely to the fairy tale structure than the Oz books.
