This Week's Oz Short Story

The next tale from A New Wonderland was "The Ruby Casket", which I have previously reviewed when I read it last year. I will add that the king deciding to celebrate his birthday three times a year, plus whenever else he thinks to do it, reminds me of how they will celebrate just about anything in the Emerald City. However, that party-at-the-drop-of-a-hat trope I associate more with Ruth Plumly Thompson than L. Frank Baum, which got me to thinking how much more Phunnyland seems more like a place Thompson might write about than what is more associated with L. Frank Baum. Hmm, this may need some further exploration as I read more of this book!
